In 1533 Richard Nugent, the 12th Baron of Delvin commenced the construction of a stronghold, which was to become known as the Castle of Ross. The tower was completed by him in 1537. The great hall and further extensions were finished by his grandson, the 13th Baron of Delvin in 1539.
1960 David Nugent started rebuilding the entire compound as a family estate in its present outline. At that time modern conveniences like heating and electricity were added to the building complex.
Three bedrooms are located in the old castle tower.
Please be aware that access to these rooms is via a steep, spiral stair case.
The following rooms are located in the tower
- Library at ground floor
- O'Reilly Room on the first floor
- Baron's Room on the second floor
- Sabina's Room on the third floor with the Wizzard's room for children underneath
