Carrignacurra Castle, Inchigeelagh, Co. Cork.

Carrignacurra Castle was probably built around 1575 to defend a ford across the River Lee about 1.5 km east (downstream) of Inchigeelagh village and would have been an O Leary Castle.

The name, Carrignacurra, probably comes from Carraig na Choradh – Rock of the weir. There was an eel weir on the River Lee here in 17th century.

The castle is in need of renovation. To date there has been the installation of three timber sub-floors at the second, third and fifth levels. Also there has been some restoration on the top floor, and roof. Situate on approx one acre with extensive river frontage.

There has also been some rebuilding of loops, windows, door surrounds, the murder hole and other details.

In the last year, planning permission has been granted for restoration and alterations to the Castle for use as a dwelling, including repairs to existing walls and roof, external rendering, new glazed balustrades construction of two storey extension and glazed link, new vehicular entrance, , proprietary sewerage treatment system and all associated site works.
