This ruined ivy clad stronghouse was at one time altered to serve as a farmhouse for Durrus Court. It is of two storeys with attics, and seen on the side-wall of this wing are the corbels for either stone machicolations, or a timber gallery. It was built by Donal Macteige MacCarthy Maclagh, who was in possession of the lands in 1631. Granted to a Colonel Reade in the 1650s, it passed in the 1690s to the Bernards, later Earls of Bandon.
