Carey's Castle is hidden in a forest setting near Clonmel in Co. Tipperary with the Glenary River running past the ruin and adding to the peaceful atmosphere here. A short walk of around 500m down a mixed woodland trail from the car park is well worth the effort as the trees part and Carey's Castle appears before your eyes.
It was built sometime during the 1800s by the local Carey family, who were schoolmasters in the area. A mixture of architectural styles are in evidence, including Romanesque and Gothic arches, Gothic windows, a Celtic round tower and a Norman Keep, which all adds up to make a beautiful building in a stunning location. It was occupied by monks at one stage but nobody was home when I visited!
