CALLALY CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

Country house, incorporating a 14th century pele tower. This developed into a hall and cross wing house in 1619 when these were added to the tower, initially as a great hall. The hall range was remodelled and extended in 1676. The right hand wing is dated 1707 but the thickness of the walls suggests that it may be earlier. The left hand section of the east front was built in 1750 and extended to the right in 1890 with the addition of a ballroom and museum wing. Various alterations were carried out in 1749, including the refacing of the pele tower, the west wall of which was rebuilt circa 1840. A further wing was added in 1836 and altered in 1893. A 2 storey loggia, now blocked, was built behind the tower in the early 18th century.
