Photographer's Note

By the 18th century, Kilkenny Castle had become run down, reflecting the failing fortunes of castle owners, the Butler family. In the 19th century, the Butlers then attempted to restore it to its original medieval appearance, rebuilding the north wing and extending the south curtain wall. The Picture Gallery was built to the north wing by the architect William Robertson and was constructed on earlier foundations.
