Castle Bernard at Kinnety (Kinnity) in Kings County has a set of gates that are closed but I cannot see them resisting a siege for any more that two minutes? Morning Mary and spouse once stayed in the castle, in the room at the top, right above the front door. It was memorable for many reasons including the warmth of the hospitality, the quality of the food but most memorably the creaky stairs that led one along a maze of corridors and stairways to the room and down again! Each journey was an adventure in itself with the creaks and cracks providing background music!
