About Nenagh Keep

Nenagh Castle & Grounds
Nenagh Castle can be counted as one of the finest examples of a cylindrical keep in Ireland. It forms the northern part of a pentagonal court, with two strong towers on each angle and a gatehouse on its southern side.

The keep, 30 metres in height and 20 feet thick at the base, along with the partial ruins of the gatehouse and one tower are all that have survived. The castle is the original settlement in the town. The Keep is due to be open to the public in summer 2012.
