Castle of Gerald the Devil

In the neighbourhood
Opposite St Nicholas’ Church, on the other side of the street, is the original 16th-century Masons’ Guild Hall.
Today the 15th-century Toreken, at that time the guild hall of the tanners, is home to the Poetry Centre.
With its thick walls, battlements, corner turrets and embrasures, the five-sided barracks still look above all like a fortified stronghold.
