O'Dea Castle

This is a fortified tower house standing about fifty feet in height about three miles south from the Corrofin/Cora Finne on the southern edge of the Burren in County Clare. The castle was built between 1470 and 1490 by Diarmaid O'Dea, Lord of Cineal Fearmaic. The castle houses the Clare Archaeology Centre which as well as providing tours of parts of the building also has artefacts from the area dating from 100BC and 1700AD.
