W7698 : Castles of Munster: Cregg, Cork

Castles of Munster: Cregg, Cork
Castles of Munster: Cregg, Cork
No close access is currently allowed to this castle whilst it undergoes renovation. It is a very fine round-cornered six storeyed C16 tower house and like Castlehyde 2km to the east, stands on the north side of the Blackwater. The Roches held this tower until it was forfeited in the 1640s. Seen here at the fifth storey level are windows with ogival-headed lights, and a bartizan amongst the modern scaffolding. The sixth storey has a mural room with a fireplace, as does the mural chamber at the fifth storey level next to an oven, and a drain through a slop stone, so it must have been a kitchen.
