Lackeen House is an intact mid-18th century house which is attached to the ruins of a 17th century dwelling. There is a distinct difference between the two parts, with evidence of recent occupation giving way to complete dereliction as you move through the house.

An old dartboard still hangs on one of the walls in the main room and if the number of darts trophies lying around is anything to go by, the last occupant of the house was a very accomplished player. The stairs have rotted away so unfortunately access to the rooms in the upper floor was not possible. The older Lackeen Castle is a tower house on the same site and shows how the site was developed for residential use over the centuries.
