Annaghdown Castle is a restored tower house on the shores of Lough Corrib. Although there is little known about the Castle, research from it’s owners brought to light some interesting facts. 

The castle is a 15th century Norman style tower house with carbon dating samples dating back to 1440. It was originally believed that the Castle was either built by the De Burgo family or the O’Flaherty clan but it had been discovered that the castle was in fact built for an Anglo-Norman bishop who was backed by the De Burgo’s.
