Lackeen Castle is located just a few miles from the village of Lorrha in Co. Tipperary and it is well signposted. It is a four storey towerhouse (including a vaulted third floor) which once belonged to the Chieftain of Ormond, Brian Ua Cinneide Fionn. It was originally built in the 12th century and was restored in the 16th century when some ancient manuscripts were found hidden in its walls.

It is in good general condition and as is often the case with castles the stone stairs are still almost perfect. It stands in the ruins of a walled courtyard (or a bawn) which backs on to an old derelict farmhouse known as Lackeen House. The castle is currently being guarded by two cows but if you ask nicely they will let you visit.
