Ballysaggartmore Towers are a truely magical sight. They were built in 1850 by Arthur Kiely-Ussher for his wife who wanted to live in a large house. The plan was to build a large castle but having built the bridge, its towers and the gate lodge, the money ran out so work on the castle never began. Instead they had to settle for a much more modest house which was demolished in the 1930s.

If the towers are anything to go by, the castle would have been spectacular. The first eight pictures are of the bridge and towers and the remainder are of the gate lodge. This is a great place for a walk. If you follow the path through the forest the towers will appear. They are located just off the R666 from Lismore to Fermoy (car park on the right).
