Loughmoe Castle is the ancient home of the Purcell family. It is located near the river Suir in the village of Loughmore and it is an extensive ruin, the oldest part of which was originally built in the 15th or 16th century. It consists of a four-storey tower house with additions made by the Purcell family in the 17th century. The Purcell family lived in the castle until around 1760.

There is a major crack in one of the walls of the original tower house stretching almost from top to bottom. There are still some stone fireplaces within the walls, the biggest and most striking being in the original part of the castle. This fireplace is also cracked but it is still very impressive, as is the whole building.
