A detour to see this fantastic castle. Built for the Mac Sweeny's in the Fifteenth Century, it is a typical tower house of the period which unusually retains its surrounding bawn wall. The building is very well preserved being restored in the nineteenth century and again in the mid 2000's (when the tower was lime washed once again and a roof reinstated). It is located in a remote and very picturesque situation. It is a place of great character. It was brought into public ownership in 1932.
