King's Castle is a castle in Ardglass, County Down, Northern Ireland. It was originally built in the 12th century and additions were made at various times over the centuries. It was rebuilt in the 19th century to the original specifications after parts of it collapsed in 1830 during repairs to the castle's foundation: restoration finished in 1988 and the castle opened as a nursing home and remains one today.

... the largest of the many ancient castles of Ardglass, and is popularly known by the name of "the King's Castle." It was a fortress of considerable size and strength; but is at present much dilapidated, and falling to decay.
