Donegal Castle

Well, it's just a tower house actually, built by Red Hugh O'Donnell in the 15th century, burned and abandoned when the Brits arrived and the O'Donnells fled, given to a Capt. Basil Brooke in the early 17th, who rebuilt it and added the Jacobean annex. It affords a good look at what a tower house was like, was free with our Irish Heritage card, and was on the way....
