The ruins of this 13th century Norman castle are located near the Aghadoe Round Tower and church and across the street from the Aghadoe Hotel. You can climb to the upper level of the castle for a view of the lakes and mountains.

There is not much left of this site, the best way to find it is to put Aghadoe Heights hotel & spa in to your GPS , it is very near, if you see Lackabane golf course, you went too far,turn around. it is behind you on the left,

Its not exactly a castle but a tower house - not much left but any history that you can walk through is great.
