Knockdrin Castle in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath looks like an childs version of a castle. Lots of towers with lots of fancy castellation on top but of dubious defensive value? That gate looks like it was the entrance to another fortress that was retained when fancy Dan was built. It certainly doesn't control access to the castle.
