Cabragh Castle

// Cahir Castle, Restored Castle, built from 1142 by Conor O'Brien, Prince of Thomond. Once the stronghold of the Butler family. The castle retains its impressive keep, tower and much of its original defensive structure. It is one of Ireland's largest and best preserved castles. It is situated on a rocky island on the River Suir. In 1375 the castle was granted to James Butler, newly created Earl of Ormond, for his loyalty to Edward III. His son James, the second Earl (by his second marriage) passed the lands around the barony of Iffa and Offa West to his children, though they were not themselves noble. This changed by 1542 when Thomas Butler,1st Barons Cahir was created. Unlike their Anglican kinsmen, this branch of the Butler dynasty sided with the Roman Catholic Irish in the Elizabethan wars. In 1599 the castle was captured after a three-day siege by the army of the Earl of Essex and was for a year put under the charge of Sir Charles Blount. Lord Cahir joined with the Earl of Tyrone in 1601 and was attainted for treason, but later obtained a full pardon. In 1627 the castle was where Cahir's son-in-law, Lord Dunboyne, murdered his distant cousin, James Prendergast, in a dispute over an inheritance: he was tried for the killing but acquitted. During the Irish Confederate Wars the castle was besieged twice. In 1647 George Mathew, the guardian of the young Lord Cahir, surrendered to Murrough O'Brien, 6th Baron Inchiquin (later 1st Earl, and a descendant of Cahir's builder) following his victory at the battle of Knocknanauss. In 1650 he surrendered again to Oliver Cromwell, during his conquest of Ireland without a shot even being fired. In 1961 the last Lord Cahir died and the castle reverted to the Irish state. Late in the 20th century the castle was named a National Monument, managed by the Office of Public Works. In 1981 it was used as a location for a battle scene in the film Excalibur. The castle was also used as a location for television series the Tudors.

// Clareburg Castle - four storey strong-house. It stands alongside a two storey west range with fireplaces in the south end wall.

Castle Otway or Cloghonan, - a combination of a tower house of c.1600 and an 18th century house, although the original tower has all but disappeared under 19th century remodelling. The tower, originally called Cloghonan adjoined an 18th century house named Castle Otway, after the Otway family were granted the property in 1665. The combined block was much altered and renovated in the 19th century, and remained occupied until 1906.

// Damer House associated with Damer sub Portarlington. Early 18th century house built within the walls of the old Butler castle in the town of Roscrea by Joseph Damer (father of Joseph Damer, 1st Earl of Dorchester and maternal grandfather of 1st Earl of Portarlington). He lived there only for a short while. Used as a barracks for most of the 19th century, then as a school, after which it housed the County Library and Engineering Offices. By 1973 it was in poor condition and threatened with demolition, but saved by the Irish Georgian Society. After it has been restored it is destined to become a major tourist attraction alongside the castle.
