Ballybur Castle, the ancient seat of the Comerford clan, is a five storey 16th century towerhouse 8 km south of the medieval city of Kilkenny.
The castle has been restored to it's former authentic glory using the same techniques and materials as the original 16th century builders. The rooms are larger and the stairs wider than in most of the known square towerhouses.
Modern comforts have been incorporated without detracting from the charm and simple grandeur of this ancient dewlling. A unique and beautiful example of a medieval towerhouse, built for security and status, and is still a feature of the Irish landscape.
