Description Lydacan or Lydican Castle was a residence of the Lynch family in the 1770s. The OS Name Books record the "substantial residence of Mr. Gunning" in Lydacan in the 1830s. Lydacan Castle was purchased by Martin O'Flaherty in the mid-19th century and was subsequently sold by him to James Greated. It was burnt in 1922 and the ruins remain.
