Cratloemoyle Castle is a striking feature on the landscape as you travel on the Ennis to Limerick dual carriageway. It has three large halls on different levels and is roughly 65 feet high. It is said that the last inhabitant of Cratloemoyle Castle died around 1780 and it has been vacant for over 200 years.

Large fireplaces dominate the halls on each level and the heat generated would have made the castle warm even in harsh winters. Having passed this castle over 2000 times on a school bus in the 1980s, Nobody Home was a great reason to dig a bit deeper and take some pictures. Thanks to Shane Hickey for the last picture, taken by his father in the 1970s.
