The Black Castle is located in Wicklow Town. 

The land on which the Castle is located was granted to Strongbow, who gave it to a Norman lord to build castles upon it. 

The Castle was attacked a number of times by the native Irish people, but in 1645 it was completely destroyed in a fire started by the Irish. 

The small fragment of the castle which remains is now a tourist attraction.
