Ross Castle

Built in the 15th century, Ross Castle in Killarney, Co. Kerry, Ireland, is the ancestral home of the O'Donoghue Clan. Also, interestingly enough, it was one of the last strongholds to capitulate to the British Cromwellian armies. How? Because warships were dragged by Oxen up the river Laune and into Lough Leane on who's banks the fortification resides. It must have been some sight to see warships in this relatively small lake.
