Impressive remains of a 17th century fortified house with some interesting architectural features.

Its nice to see from the outside - but sure you can't walk around the ground so it is no better than looking at it through pictures.

Make sure to visit while exploring Leitrim county. Typical Irish attraction where you wouldn't expect it.

I was disappointed as the hours are restrictive. Beautiful ruins, great signs to explain its origin, the history of the place and the carnage thanks to its miserable owner. The gardeners home is gorgeous. Very well kept clean grounds. No bathrooms in sight.
