Thought to be Ireland’s oldest example of a Castle built entirely from undressed stone, Annaghkeen Castle is a late 13th century hall-house built by the De Burgo family. 

In order for the De Burgo family to defend their Manor of Headford from rival attacks by the O’Flaherty clan across the Corrib, the Castle Cargin stands within close vicinity. In 1574, the castle was held by Moyler McReamon, a descendant from the Burke family.
