Castle and Barracks

The O’Brien castle dates from the fifteenth/sixteenth century and the barracks from 1748-51. This strategic fortress was captured by Cromwellians in 1651 and by Williamites in 1691. The garrison at Clarecastle came in to being in the mid-1600s and from 1691 to 1881 it was the main British army garrison in Clare.
