Description Originally the site of an O'Flaherty castle and occupied by the Geoghegans. Their descendant John Augustus O'Neill built a new castle residence at the foot of the Hill of Doon which he was unable to complete. Bought by the Blakes of Towerhill in 1852 and used as a summer residence. It is now a ruin.
