Clodah Castle

Clodah Castle, sometimes also spelled as Clodagh, lies in a field south west of the village of Crookstown, in County Cork in Ireland.

Clodah Castle at least dates back to the 16th century, as there is said to be a fireplace on its 4th floor which bears the date 1598. The castle was the main seat of the MacSweeney/MacSwinney family. I could not find any more historical information about this castle. If you know more, please mail me.

Clodah Castle is a square tower house which stands to almost 5 storeys high. On the 4th floor there are several nice mullioned windows. There is also some nice decoration of dotted lines around some windows and the entrance, that I haven't encountered at other castles.

The castle stands on private farmland and is not accessible.

A nice castle, too bad you can not get inside.
