Tullaun Castle is a 16th century Gaelic, O’Kennedy tower house located in the townland of Lisquillibeen, Coolbawn, North Tipperary, Ireland. This majestic, four-storey tower stands on a rock outcrop in the middle of a bog and is bordered by the pretty, crystal-clear Ballycolliton River to the north. It’s in a scenic location, surrounded by fields, woods and forestry with picturesque Lough Derg Lakelands about two kms away as the crow flies. From the top floors, the views are magnificent and the ruins of Annagh and Cashlaunteigebocht (Poor Teige’s) Castles (both former O’Kennedy strongholds) can be seen as well as the Devil’s Bit Mountain and Silvermine Mountains.
Tullaun Castle, close to the shores of the Lough Derg Lakelands, is currently being restored by Sonja and Kevin. They welcome visitors to the castle once the appointment is arranged in advance. They are now also offering bed and breakfast, “the overknighter” for 2 people, where you can travel back 500 years in time and spend the night in the recently restored Great Hall.
