Burnchurch Castle and turret tower, Burnchurch, Co. Kilkenny
Burnchurch Castle, on the left, is a 15th century tower house built by the Burnchurch branch of the Fitzgerald family. It is six storeys high and originally it was connected to a walled courtyard. Over the years the property passed through various hands and was last occupied in 1817. Since then it has deteriorated though the present condition is reasonable for such an old building. On the right is a turret like tower. This would originally have formed part of the castle's walled defences.
