Sorry, but I can't find a mention of the family Barrett, or the castle in any of my sources.
Is it a medieval or modern castle ?

Barrett's Castle, aka Castle More, was apparently built in the 13th century in County Cork - close to the N20. There are some posts from 2001 about the castle if you use "Barrett Castle" in a search of this board. I'm looking for more info, so I'd be happy to hear from anyone who has some details to offer

Just read the old post .. confusing .

Only thing I have up to now is Salter's reference.

"Two walls remain in a very fragmentary state of a 13thC hall-house built by the de Cogans. A later medieval wing 6.3m wide projects 6.8m beyond one end. The castle is also known as Barrett's castle after the family wwho held it from 1604-89." end quote.

Will keep looking.

The only two sources for this castle I can find are

Archaeological Inventory of County Cork - Vol III - Mid Cork - pages 354-5 (which includes a photo).

The Castles of County Cork - James N Healey -pages 307 and 319-320 (this includes a drawing).

I can e-mail you copies if you wish - but they will be large files.
