This conspicuous peel tower is a well-marked object in all wide views of the low central coast of Clare despite the fact that the tower lies on very low ground. Though the castle is probably a late 15th century building, but the place appears in the records from a far earlier period. The castle had been confirmed to the Earl of Thomond in 1652 by the commonwealth and again to him, Col. Carey Dillion and Robert Dixon. It was afterwards held by Samuel Burton, and in 1712 it was granted in fee farm to Mrs. Alice Burton by Henry, Earl of Thomond.
