Ballinalaken Castle Doolin(60 mins walk 15 mins by car)

This 15th century castle  is a ruin of the O'Brien Clan.

It stands imposingly beside the Ballinalacken House which was built by Lord O'Brien in 1840 as his family home. In 1939 Daniel O'Callaghan purchased the home from the O'Briens.  Today it remains in the O'Callaghan family and is currently owned by Denis O'Callaghan (Daniel's son).

A well preserver fortified tower house of the O'Brien clan dating from the 15th century.
