Clondagoff Castle, Co Galway

Private Client

Project Details:

Clondagoff Castle is a late-medieval tower house on the western shore of Lough Derg. Dated to c. 1560, it displays a high level of craftsmanship and retains features such as an unusually large triple ogee-headed mullioned-and-transomed window, spiral stairs, garderobe chute, and a slightly pointed barrel vault with markings of wicker centring. Its siting on Lough Derg commanding a view of the entry point of the Shannon into the lake and the presence of a stone jetty contribute to the understanding of trade arteries in that period. A conservation report was prepared to assess the history, significance and condition of the castle, and to develop a set of priorities, both short and long term which will guide repairs to the structure and improvements to the site based on best conservation practice.
