Located in the tranquil and fertile Blackwater Valley
The castle dates to circa 1540 and has been restored in recent years.
Carrigacunna Castle is located in the tranquil and fertile Blackwater Valley, 10 minutes driving time from Mallow and about 20 minutes to Fermoy market towns, both offering a comprehensive range of provincial town amenities. Cork city is a 40 minute drive from Carrigacunna Castle
The 18th and 19th century Georgian architecture is enhanced and augmented beautifully by the 21st century additions. These works included the complete restoration and upgrading of the house to present it in superb condition today.
Carrigacunna Castle is a perfect example of a medieval tower-house built in the early 1500’s. It stands in a commanding, once highly strategic position overlooking a vast sweep of the river valley. There are panoramic views over the valley to the Ballyhoura and Galtee mountains to the north and Nagle mountains and to the south along this winding stretch of the Blackwater river.
The castle now restored can remain either an exquisite folly or possibly presents a unique opportunity to be re-occupied. The Nagle Mountains, accessed across a country road from the estate, offer extensive walking and horseriding amenities.
