Ballcarbery Castle was once the home of the McCarthy family, built around the 15th/16th century. Now it is being reclaimed by nature, exposed to the weather as well as some tourists and cows.
It was my favorite of all the ruins we visited in Ireland. Around every corner there was some new beauty.
Apparently you cannot get this close to the castle anymore, but it is still worth a trip to Cahersiveen in County Kerry to see it.
