Dunguaire Castle

Interesting
Opposite the charming little port of Kinvarra, in Kinvarra Bay, a four-storey tower house and a bawn built in 1520 by the descendants of Guaire, King of Connaught during the 7C. Traces of the wickerwork support used in its construction are still visible on the ground floor vault. The first and second floors are furnished for medieval banquets, but the top floor (76 steps) houses a contemporary sitting room.
