Dublin Castle
After wandering around the streets for a while, they managed to find Dublin Castle. Only one tower remains from castle times. Everything else was rebuilt in the 1700s.

Extending down the hill from the Record Tower is the Chapel Royal.

The main gateways in the courtyard are topped by statues. The figure of Justice was something of a snub to Dublin. With her back to the town, the suggestion is that there is no justice outside the castle. Also, she isn't blindfolded, and until Irish independence was won, the scales would fill with water when it rained, and thus be tilted. (After independence, the legend has it that someone climbed up and drilled holes in the scales so that they would drain. At any rate, the scales remain balanced today.)
