Northwest Ireland | County Donegal
Carrickabraghy Castle is located about 10 km north from the village of Ballyliffin (on the northern tip of Pollan Strand) on Inishowen peninsula in County Donegal. The castle was built in 16th Century, probably by Gearalt O'Doherty who held the lordship of Inishowen at that time. The last Irish lord of this land and the castle was Cahir O’Doherty, who died in 1608. After his death Carrickabraghy Castle was apparently abandoned and it fell into decay. Thanks to a grant from the National Rural Development Programme Leader and collected funds from local charity events and private donators, the Carrickabraghy Restoration Society was able to complete the first phase of the work of conservation in December 2013, saving the castle from total collapse.
