‪Bigger than expected and a nice subject to photograph. Worth a look. Not too far from Ballymote and Gurteen. Bring your wellies or boots as the ground will most likely be wet and soggy.‬

‪What a place to visit! It fits in with all age groups, off the beaten track. Loved that it is not over taken by a tourist body. Great that it has beautiful setting‬

‪This is quite and interesting, and fairly well survived ruin of a large Castle.
there is also some blocks on the ground between the cattle gates worth checking out, doubt very much there is a Sheela-na-gig on one, but interesting carved figures all the same. The Castle itself has a good bit left of one of the corner Towers, so you can sort of work out what it look like in its heyday. One to put on your bucket list, You really should seek permission to enter the land its on, as there are Animals on the ground, surrounding the castle most of the time. but once you seek that the landowner will be quite accommodating,‬

‪This place is likely off the beaten path for most, but as it fit into our drive from Galway to Donegal, we figured why not?!

The place is marked with signage and you take a narrow one lane driveway past some farmhouses to a small parking area.

There is a sign about unauthorized access and whatnot, something we've seen here before. Not wanting to be the "ugly American" type and trespass, I went to the nearby farmhouse and was met outside by an old couple. They laughed when I asked permission and said the sign was there for insurance purposes.

Waking up the castle is best done with hiking shoes or whatever you don't mind getting muddy. It was sunny, but still wet and muddy. You'll have to mind the cows and dodge cow pies too. The westerly gate was gated closed, I figure for safety as the surviving arch is in poor shape. The other access is the wall breach on the easterly/opposite wall.

It's a nice simple ruin with remains of the keep just a grass covered pile of rock. The four corner towers are in various states of decay, but I figure it added ambience. The walls I guess can be walked, but we avoided the one part we saw that was possible as there were four black sheep on sentry duty along the north wall giving us the ever watchful stink eye.

So heck, a cool free castle, with a great view....and no one else to wander into your picture frame...of COURSE I recommend this place.‬

‪In all my travels through Erin (I visited 12 times so far) I include some searches for that pagan figure called Sheela Na Gig. Not only is it an intreging artefact but in doing so it gives direction to my planning. When I found information about one that was lying here amongst the rubble on the ground I had to come over and look for it. Found the Castle itself huge and in it's time it must have been a sight to behold... Not that much left these days beside the Wall's and a few tower stumps but still impressive (and free)... O and I found my Sheela after some time looking for it...‬

‪My Mom was an O'Gara whose family was from Glencolumbcille Donegal Ireland. It is said that their ancestors came from Sligo in the mid 1700's. The grounds were facinating to us. I had my family with me, my husband, both my daughters and my son in law and grandson. We had a delightful time just looking over the land and the ruins. Very peaceful. We enjoyed all the ruins we found in Ireland but this was special to me To think it is a possibility that my ancestors once lived and walked that same land - my daughters also felt it was special. We got permission from the owners of the ruins and land prior to our trip- they don't mind you looking over their land but appreciate you asking. Its an amazing view as well to Lough Gara. Lots of cattle grazing around, the people in the immediate area are just as pleasant and lovely as most people of Ireland are. Generous souls and friendly to all. Well worth the detour from Sligo -‬

‪The ancient castle of the Gara's looms up out of the fields as you round a bend in the road; it is almost unexpected, like somebody dropped it here from outer space. The castle is so out-of-scale with the small fields that is surprises you, even though you know it is there.
The ruin is not well kept. Cattle graze in the fields surrounding the building and in the keep, and access is muddy and difficult. It seems as though there was an attempt a few yerars back to make it more visitor-friendly, with a small parking area and a pedestrian gate, and a wooden bench in the central area. The bench is now decaying and upturned, and the building will deteriorate further unless there is an intervention.
All that aside, this is a place worth visiting. You will most likely have it to yourself; not many people go there, and if you have a suny day you can sit and gaze and wonder at the people who built this huge stonework here, in what is amost the middle of nowhere.
Fascinating, and full of atmosphere, despite its failings.‬

‪My mother is a Gara and visited the castle in 1973. I visited in 1995. It is a ruin, surrounded by livestock fields, overlooking a graveyard offering eternal rest for many O'Garas and Garas, with a distant view of Lough Gara. The spot is peaceful and verdant, the ruin heaves from the ground, and when I was there, a clutch of old red-headed gravediggers leaned on the implements of their trade.
You will find the castle somewhat outside of Sligo near the tiny hamlet of Gurveen.
