On the shores of Lough Derg. 'Although gutted by fire in 1826,' the guidebook says, 'the Castle is still an imposing example of early 17th Century Irish architecture.' Actually very interesting.

Castle & gardens include a 17th century walled kitchen garden. This Manor was the seat of the De Burgo family for over 200 years. Nearby are Lough Derg, the river Shannon and Portumna Forest Park.

We love the restored garden here at Portumna Castle, not to mind the whole history of the 'big house'. Worth a visit especially if combined with a visit to the Workhouse in Portumna.

Another slice of history that's fascinating to learn about.

Museum
“Come and visit the Hiberno-Norman tower, with its fourteenth century stones and intimate living spaces so closely associated with the poet WB Yeats. Walk the narrow bridge and crossing stones, admire the gardens and river, view Yeats’s pear trees, one ‘broken by a storm’ as in his poem ‘Meditations in Time of Civil War’, and now, once again, enter into the sacred ground of tower and cottage. There you can climb the famous winding stair, stride the battlements and view the countryside, experience our immersive exhibitions exploring the poet’s art, his connection with the west, and his life and loves, attend our cultural events programme, shop for books and momentos, and take a cup of tea by our roaring fire. For more on the tower’s history, click here. Every year the tower is open between Spring and Autumn; occasionally, too, earlier and later, or at other times for special events. Due to weather conditions the interior of Thoor Ballylee is closed for the winter months, although the tower, bridge, river, grounds, and garden are still a moving place of pilgrimage to visit. You can walk up the stream to the old mill, picture Yeats’s wife George fishing from the tower windows, and of course use our year-round car park & facilities. In Summer 2015 thanks to our volunteers and supporters Thoor Ballylee was opened for the first time in many years between June and September. For Yeats’s 151st birthday in June 2016 our new Yeats Thoor Ballylee Exhibition was opened by the actress Sabina Coyle Higgins. In 2017 Thoor Ballylee reopened with its wonderful exhibitions and full programme of cultural events throughout the summer, and 2018 was packed full of even more. The 2019 season kicks off on Saturday 20th April, and features the opening of our new studio space 3pm Sunday 28th April. Come along anytime all summer to find out what Yeats’s tower has to offer! ”
