Kilcloggan Castle

Kilcloggan Castle

Kilcloggan Castle lies in the townland of the same name, in County Wexford in Ireland.

Kilcloggan Castle is thought to have been built during the 14th century by the Knights Hospitallers of St John. The castle was the centre of their manor and they later also held the castles of Ballyhack and Slade, also on the Hook peninsula. The Order was suppressed in 1541 and later that century, in 1587, the castle was held by Henry Radcliffe. In 1591 it passed to Sir Dudley Loftus. It stayed in the hands of his descendants until the later part of the 19th century.

The castle is a slender, square tower house standing to a height of 17 meters. Originally it would have been connected to a bawn which has now disappeared.

Kilcloggan Castle is situated in the garden of a private residence, so it can not be visited. A very nice castle.
