A Secure, Scenic View

The name of this lofty seaside fortress comes from the Gaelic term "Árd Choill" which means "High Wood." This castle dates back to 1738, and is a two-story country home combined with south-facing lawns and medieval battlements.

The view of the castle is quite striking, as it stands on a high vantage point and overlooks the Irish Sea. The ground floor, which includes the kitchen and other communal spaces, is open to the public. The upper floor contains a permanent exhibition that displays vintage maps, texts, photographs, and surveys of other buildings on the grounds.
