  • A lonely tower house and bawn built around 1500 by MacTurlough O'Conner upon the site of an earlier 14th century fortification located from the village of Doolin, County Clare. In 1588, a ship of the Spanish Armada shipwrecked off the coast just below the castle and the town sheriff, Boetius MacClancy, arrested some 170 stranded Spaniards, then hanged them at the castle. They were buried at a nearby Iron Age barrow called Cnocán an Crochaire. By the early 19th century, the castle had fallen into disuse and disrepair, but then a counselor Gore renovated the castle. It had called into bad repair again by the mid 19th century before being purchased by Irish-American John C. Gorman, who turned the tower house into a private holiday home. It remains in the possession of the Gorman family to this day. (en)

  • Also known as "Castle House" or "Lisgar House," Bailieborough Castle, was by 1629 an enclosed demesne that was attacked by Irish rebel forces under Colonel Hugh O’Reilly in 1641. Around 1895 in Ireland, the estate was sold under the Ashbourne Act to a Sir Stanley Herbert Cochrane Bt., only to be destroyed by fire in 1918. Though the house was largely rebuilt two years later, it was ultimately sold for demolition in 1923. (en)
  • An early 17th-century Plantation-era castle built by a Capt. Culme and Walter Talbot that burned down in 1764. The castle was rebuilt as Ballyconnell House by a "G. Montgomery." (en)
  • Today a tourist attraction, this 15th century castle has a long and checkered history. Built on the site of an ancient Viking settlement and an earlier 13th century castle built in 1270 by Thomas de Clare, this castle, built in 1425 by MacNamara clan, was seized by the O'Briens in a battle in 1475, whose lord was then granted the title "Earl of Thomund" by King Henry VIII. The castle, under the defense of William Penn, was again seized in the Irish Confederate Wars. In 1712, the castle left the holding of the O'Briens when the Eighth Earl of Thomund sold it to the Studderts, who left it to fall into ruin when they moved to a nearby residence called "Bunratty House." In 1956 Viscount Lord Gort, with the help of the Irish Office of Public Works, purchased, restored and opened the castle to the public. Today, it remains in the care of the Shannon Heritage. (en)
  • A tower house constructed by Hugh and possibly Síoda MacNamara around 1490.

  • "Cabra Castle" refers to two structures. The first structure, thought to have been an O'Reily castle, was located west of Kingscourt, was destroyed and the land it stood on confiscated by Cromwell and given to Colonel Thomas Cooch. When Cooch died in 1699, he willed the property to the Pratts, a local Ascendancy family. However, the land the current castle stands on was at that time owned by the Fosters, another Ascendancy family, and it contained a small tower destroyed in the time of Cromwell house dubbed "Cormey Castle." This house was rebuilt in 1808, but its construction exhausted the funds of the Fosters so the property was sold to the Pratts. Today, the castle and estate functions as a hotel. (en)
  • A ruin where in 1591 Murrogh O'Brien, the Lord of Caherminnaun, died. In 1839, the site of the castle was described as "a heap of ruins and rubbish." (en)
