Moyry Castle is a North Irish castle in County Armagh, north of Dundalk. Built in 1601 by Lord Mountjoy to help secure Moyry Pass and the Gap of the North, it is one of the nice sights of the area. To visit if you like historical monuments!

Visit Moyry Castle

 A castle full of charm lost in the North Irish countryside!

Moyry Castle takes the form of a small rectangular three-storey tower. Its windows, as well as its main entrance, are still intact, and only the top of the tower has been able to stand the test of time.

Partly in ruins, the tower has traces of an old defensive wall, as well as some old traces of foundations. The place is magical, and seems to be outside of time.

It is possible to visit it for free, provided of course that you are careful (the ruins are rather shaky). It must be said that the surroundings are rather quiet, and that the castle has a rare authenticity! A real postcard castle!
