Ballycarbery Castle is roughly 3 km from Caherciveen on the famous Ring of Kerry. These ancient ruins were once a magnificent castle that was constructed sometime in the 16th century and it is said that there was also some sort of dwelling on the site even earlier than this. The castle was originally the seat of the MacCarthy Mor family. In 1652 it was destroyed by canon fire by Cromwellian forces and its now just a shell of its former self.

The castle is showing its age and there are several cracks in the fragile and crumbling walls that remain. On a wet and windy weekday in August there were quite a few other people there visiting the castle and the cows that were grazing in the fields didn't seem to mind.
