Dungarvan Castle, built at the mouth of the River Colligan, is an Anglo-Norman fortification founded in 1185. From here, soldiers could command the narrow strip of land to the south of the Comeragh Mountains. The castle consists of a polygonal shell keep with an enclosing curtain wall, a corner tower and a gate tower.
The barracks is now restored and houses an informative exhibition on the history of the castle.
