Cullenstown Castle

Tower House

This Tower House at Cullenstown probably dates to around the beginning of the 17th century. There is a reference to it from c.1634/54 when John Cullen possessed the castle and 80 acres in Cullenstown, possibly from the Cheever family. I am not sure how many floors existed before the building was reduced to two storeys. The remaining floors have been adapted as a modern residence and a two storey house, built between 1760-90, abuts the north wall of the tower house. The quoins and base batter are the best feature of this squat looking castle. I am not fond of the relatively modern concrete crenellations that now adorn the tops of the walls. Please note this is a private residence.
