Deerpark Castle

Map Reference: M547132 (1547, 2132)

A small 15th century Burke castle. It is a tall slim tower with a small guard chamber to the right of the doorway and a fragmentary spiral stairway to the left. Ahead is a pointed inner doorway and above is a vertical stack of narrow rectangular rooms.The presence of this inner doorway and other doorway in the wall at higher level shows that this tower was intended to be part of a larger stucture. There are some projecting bond stones but no indication that the rest of the castle was built.
