This stunning ruin is all that remains of Carrigogunnell Castle, which is situated near the village of Clarina. The castle is an impressive fortress dominating a volcanic rocky crag. It consists of a multi-sided enclosure, fortified by a strong wall probably of 15th-century date, in a poor state of preservation. The castle was blasted apart by cannon during the 1691 siege of Limerick.
