Robertstown Castle

Map Reference: N786842 (2786, 2842)

This early-17th century house is three storeys high with attics. There are projecting turrets carried on corbels at the SW and NE corners. They are very similar to those found on Scottish castles.

They have very fine small keyhole-shaped defensive loops. A N wing was added at a later date. The ground floor is a series of vaulted rooms and the first floor is divided into three rooms.

An interior doorway at the first floor has fine pecked decoration and there is a good two-light mullioned window in the W wall near the S end.
