Knockkelly Castle

Map reference: S230378 (2230, 1378)

A close inspection of Knockkelly Castle is not now available. However much of the detail is visible from the roadside. The castle stands to full height within a substantial bawn. The bawn has two round corner flankers with a bartizan at one of the other corners. The tower-house has two chimneys and some roof weepers but no crenellations. There are machicolation corbels at the south wall. Some good corner defensive slits can be seen and there are a number of mullioned and transomed windows. The bawn flankers are well-provided with small musket loops at the lower levels.
