Exploring Ruins in County Cork, Ireland

Barrymore Castle ruins - Castlelyons, County Cork, Ireland Barrymore Castle ruins - Castlelyons, County Cork, Ireland

A recent photography tour took me back to County Cork and after finishing, since it was such a fine day, I went exploring in the Irish countryside.

Here I found Barrymore Castle in the north of County Cork, ruined since the 1770s it was built in the 1620s and was once a majestic home. 

Now it is only ruins and ivy, standing on a bluff overlooking a small river. Unlike many of the ruins dotting the Irish countryside this one was not destroyed in some war or conflict but in a conflagration that some say lasted for months, during repairs to the roof.

See my exploration of Barrymore Castle below on Panoramic Ireland's YouTube channel.
