Cloontykilla Castle is a small but magnificent castle hidden away in a remote part of Lough Kee National Forest Park. It is part of the old Rockingham Estate and was built in the early 19th century in the style of a 13th century fortress with buttressed walls. One of the stones in the archway entrance shows the date 1839.

The living space is very small and the castle was more than likely a hunting or fishing lodge for the estate. The setting of Cloontykilla Castle would be hard to beat; it is surrounded by water and hundreds of acres of forest. The magnificent Castle Island is a short row away. You'll go a long way before you find two more magnificent ruins in such close proximity.
