Once under threat by an army led by Sir Walter Raleigh, this castle was the seat of the Barry family from the 12th to the 17th centuries, and bears the marks of a place that figured in the ongoing conflicts with English control (cannonball marks are still in the walls). The present castle, a fine example of a tower house in the Norman tradition, contains 16th century furniture and other period effects. The ground floor houses an exhibition on the Barrys and the castle. A restaurant is available.
