Derrydonnell Castle was a 15th century six storey tower house built by the Clanricarde. It’s name derives from the O’Donnell clan who spent the night at the castle before their attack on Athenry. 

The castle, although now in ruins, still outline the remains of a bawn with a dungeon which brings great mystery to the castle as to what or who the dungeon would have held in the past.
