Very interesting place with a very interesting history, although closed when we were there, Rebecca, the owner welcomed us in to the first floor and told us a bit of the history.

As a historical landmark it needs attention. This castle is directly related to Henry VIII as it was the home of the Boleyn family at one stage.It would be nice to be able to explore further but Health & Safety must be taken into account.

This small castle tower and its unusual bawn wall are well worth visiting on the way to Shannonbridge. It is not that it is a particularly authentic restoration - nor quite complete - it has a magic about it, and certainly a charm. But whether...More
