This imposing 13th -15th century structure located in the picturesque town of Cahir was skilfully designed to be a state of the art defensive castle. Every last foot of the rocky island was utilized to such good effect as to make it difficult in places to determine which part of the castle is the main part and which is the "living" rock from which it seems to grow. A guide service and an audio visual presentation are also provided.
Built in 1213, it is a motte castle similar to many Norman fortifications of the time. However the original wooden castle was destroyed later that century and replaced by a sturdier stone structure. The castle consists of a walled courtyard, gate tower and two additional towers and was once surrounded by a river on one side and a moat on the other sides.
Inside the courtyard is Damer House, a large 18th century Georgian house built by local merchant John Damer after he came into possession of the castle. Continue to the rear of the house to visit the beautiful gardens which provide a tranquil little haven from the bustle of the town.
Friday July 7thWe were called soon after 6 & told that the Packet would sail in an hour & that a Messenger had been sent to Castle Hall for Mr Woods. Our luggage having been previously searched by a custom house Officer was sent on board last night & therefore as soon as we had breakfasted we were ready but we were sadly disappointed by the non-arrival of Woods for whom we waited near an hour. At length the Captain of the Packet declared he could wait no longer, & as our luggage was on board we were reluctantly obliged to embark without him. About half an hour [after] we had got under weigh we saw a Boat with six Oars & crowding Sail to overtake us. Capt. Jankins civilly laid to till the Boat came up & then Woods to our no small satisfaction jumped on board.
Saturday July 15thWe rose & breakfasted about 6 & soon after set out to examine the Shores of Cloghnikilty Bay. In the Meadows close to the Town & also in several other places we gathered Bartsia viscosa,Parentucella viscosa (Yellow bartsia). which there grows very luxuriantly & we saw Rubia peregrinaWild madder. in equal abundance. About 9 we left Woods on the Banks of the Haven & Leach & I continued our walk till we reached the open Bay. From hence we rambled round what is called the Island i. e., Inchidoney. in search after Shells & Insects, & we were more successful than in any of our former Hunts in this Country. Scarabaeus humens & S. GlobosusBoth the scientific labels above are now obsolete. They probably refer to chafers and dung beetles, respectively. were plentiful on the Sand hills by the Seaside, on which Viola lutea grows in great abundance & Asplenium marinumSea spleenwort. grows in the Rocks. It seems to be a very good Beach for Shells & I found some with which Mr. Leach as well as myself were unacquainted. From Cloghnikilty Bay an Arm of the Sea runs up to the Town, but its Banks are tame & the neighbourhood totally devoid of Beauty. The Town contains very few decent Houses but it is large & very populous as are all the others thro' which we have passed in this Country.
The Road from Clonmel to Carrick passes thro' a mountainous, well wooded & delightfully diversified country, which is ornamented with numerous handsome Villas. I think it well worth a Traveller's while to go several Miles round rather than miss seeing the beautiful Scenery which this Road every where commands. We stopped to change Horses at Carrick which is a large and straggling but tolerably good Town. It contains an immensely large square plot of bare earth regularly surrounded on all sides with the most wretched Hovels as if intended to burlesque this fashionable mode of erecting Houses. There is also the remains of an old Castle which formerly belonged to the Duke of Ormond, & is now occupied by one of the Family named Butler.The structure in question consists of a two-tower fifteenth-century castle adjoining a house built c. 1568 by Thomas Butler, 10th earl of Ormond (Bence-Jones, Burke's guide to country houses: 1: Ireland, 57). 2b1af7f3a8
