The ruins of the tower house and church seen from the road, from the southeast.


Just south of the small village of Lisronagh, on the R689, there are a castle and a church not marked on the OSI Map.
The castle is a ruinous tower house with a rectangular plan. A number of windows in different styles and sizes open in all walls. There's a Gothic doorway in the north-northwest (345°) wall with the corbels for a machicolation at the roof level.
The doorway leads to a rectangular vaulted chamber and two large windows in east-northeast wall and two narrow windows in the west-southwest wall. To the right of the doorway there's a mural 17-step staircase to the upper floor. From here 7 more steps lead to a higher point of view. There was another floor above this, but it's missing. The top floor had a mural chamber in the south-southeast wall and a two-light window in the east-northeast wall.
Two corner slit windows are visible in the east-southeast and in the north-northeast corners.
