Kindlestown Castle was built by Norman nobleman,
Walter de Bendeville sometime around 1225.
In 1377 the wild O’Byrnes captured the castle.
It was taken back by the Normans
and in 1402 the O’Byrnes tried to capture the castle again but were defeated.
The castle gets its name from Albert de Kendley who owned both this castle
and Rathdown castle for a short amount of time.
There is more information about Kindlestown Castle HERE on Greystones Guide.
