Knockabbey Castle, Thomastown

Map Reference: N932989 (2932, 2989)

This building seem to have been originally a three-storey tower-house with four square angle-turrets which rise above the level of the battlements. Several additions were made in Georgian times and in the early 19th century. All the original window openings were replaced at this time with Gothic Revival windows and a large doorway rising through one and a half storeys was inserted. The gothic theme was continued at the rear of the building with extra turrets and Y-tracery. Smaller buildings associated with the main house include a Gothick gate-lodge and summer-house.
