MANORHAMILTON CASTLE

Manorhamilton Castle around which the town of Manorhamilton grew has a dramatic and colorful history, stories of which live on in the town to this day.

The castle overlord Sir Frederick Hamilton was to become a bye word for cruelty down the centuries as a result of his brutality in suppressing uprisings led by the O’Rourke Chieftains whose land he had seized. On display is a permanent exhibition including artefacts from the 17th Century, replica period costumes, furniture, a castle model and other interesting items and information.

Manorhamilton Castle and Heritage Centre is open all the year round to the general public and to organized tours. A tour of the recently restored castle ruins and grounds can be taken, conducted by an experienced and informative guide.
