Ballytarsna-Hackett Castle is a 15th century tower house. It is like a keep, but has one major difference. Where a keep is a powerful thick-walled tower with few openings except arrow loops, an Irish tower house is a home for the family, that resembles a keep. When restoring this tower, we have maintained its status as a fortress. We also have made a decision to make it warm and comfortable. It is a cozy country home ensconced between castellated battlements, authentic and usable! Warm and dry!
