Tullaun Castle, Co. Tipperary
The owners of Tullaun Castle spent four years searching for ancient ruins with a view to finding an ideal tower house to restore. That search eventually led them to Tullaun, an O’Kennedy tower house in North Tipperary. It’s in a very scenic location, surrounded by fields, woods and forestry. Picturesque Lough Derg is about 2 km away as the crow flies. From the top floors the views are magnificent. The ruins of Annagh and Cashlaunteigebocht (Poor Teige’s) Castles (both former O’Kennedy strongholds) can be seen from here.
