Castle Taylor as it is today originated from a 16th century tower house. In the early 1800s the Taylor family added a three-storey house giving the building a very different look and size. In 1837 it was the seat of Gen. Sir. J. Taylor and in 1906 it was owned by Walter Shawe Taylor. The house and lands were sold to the Land Commission in the 1930s and Castle Taylor has been in ruin ever since.

The stone window frames in one of the walls of the tower house have a gothic look to them and are probably not the original windows. The tower is now occupied by a friendly cow and her calf who have a large walled garden to patrol, the walls of which are still strong. There is also a separate yard and stables a short distance from the house.
