Dunsandle Castle is a 15th century castle which was built by the De Burgo (Burke) family. The castle later changed hands to the Daly family. 

Around the 1650’s, the castle was extended in the form of a manor house. However, by 1791 the castle appeared to lay uninhabited and fell to ruin. The castle has since recently been restored. 

Dunsandle castle is filled with unique architectural features to include a great hall with tie beams, it’s groin vault construction (which was first exploited by the Romans), an 18th century ice house, a murder hole and remains of a bawn with a defence tower featuring gunloops.
