We passed the castle on the river/lake many times when travelling out from our week cottage stay at nearby Cannaway House.
We were blessed by good weather and so it was a joy to stop and view the castle, the lake and surrounding countryside at its very best.A joy to be visiting County Cork.

Carrigadrohid Castle is situated on a rock outcrop in a wonderfully picturesque setting on the River Lee, approximately 8 km east of the town of Macroom in Co. Cork.The castle is a three storey tower in a picturesque setting on the river. It is joined to the river bank by a road bridge at second storey level which joins the eastern wall of the castle. The name Carrigadrohid translates as the rock of the bridge and occurs as early as 1573, indicating that a bridge stood here at that time, likely of timber construction..

The Castle is a tower house structure, a type of fortified dwelling built extensively throughout Ireland from the fifteenth to the seventeenth century. These tower houses were the fortified residences of local lords and chieftains and later occupied by those of Anglo Irish descent. In the 15th century it was occupied by the original owners who were the MacCarthys of Muskerry. Later in about 1650, the castle was besieged by Parliamentary forces. The MacCarthys were dispossessed, and the castle was taken over by the Bowens who lived there until the mid 18th century. The castle subsequently fell into disrepair. Currently there is a locally funded project underway to restore the castle. It's a beautiful and serene place. You can stop to take in the scenery and the peacefulness.

This is a remarkable little castle (ruin) which is built into the bridge that crosses over the river Lee. Photos are great from below and include the river and bridge. We really liked the setting.
