Visit the Ballymoon Castle

A castle with grave and picturesque charm

Ballymoon Castle once consisted of a square courtyard, protected by impressive surrounding walls, several metres thick and about ten metres high.

A system of harrows still remains, once used to protect access to the building.

Nowadays, only the courtyard and these walls can be identified: the castle itself has been completely razed to the ground and only its foundations remain.

It offers a magnificent view of the surroundings and has the authentic charm of Irish ruins. Its access is free, and offers a rather nice visit!
