On our holiday in Cork we went to Barryscourt Castle, an Irish tower house built for defence. It has been extensively restored using authentic materials and techniques. These pots are replicas made as part of the restoration.

In contract to English historical buildings, admission and the guided tour were free, there was no gift shop and no pressure to join a national conservation body. I felt almost guilty at getting such a valuable experience for nothing!
