"Immerse yourself in Ireland's rich history with our exclusive prints of Athlone Castle, a striking monument from the Anglo-Norman era. Commissioned by King John of England and realized by his Irish justiciar, Bishop John De Gray of Norwich, this castle symbolizes the beginning of Athlone's historic transformation. Although not the first castle on this site, its endurance outshines its predecessors.

Our collection beautifully captures the castle's impressive preservation, highlighting the harmonious blend of its original 1210 structure with later modifications made for evolving warfare needs. Athlone Castle, now a hallmark of Napoleonic fortifications, underwent significant redesigns during this period to secure the strategic Shannon crossing.

Each print in our series is more than just art; it's a gateway to a bygone era. They vividly portray the castle's remarkable resilience and the architectural evolution from its ancient roots to its military prowess. Bring home a piece of this enduring legacy and let Athlone Castle narrate its centuries-old tale from your very own wall.

Printed on archival-quality Hahnemuhle Fine Art paper with professional light-fast inks, each limited edition print is a collector's item. Individually titled, numbered, and signed by artist Bernice Cooke, these prints are sold unmounted and unframed, securely shipped in a postal tube. The provided photos are for reference only.
