Caherkinmonwee Castle is a late 5 storey medieval tower believed to have been built in the 15th century. It has been recorded that in 1574, the castle was held by Myler Henry Burke.
The castle was left in ruin for over two hundred years before being purchased by Peter Hayes in 1996. Under the ownership of Mr. Hayes, the castle underwent a large restoration project. The castle still retains some of the original features such as bartizans on all four corners, a spiral staircase and latrines on the second, third, and fourth storey levels.
