Carrickabraghy Castle Caisleán Carraig Brachai

On the northern headland of the Isle of Doagh are the ruins of Carrickabraghy Castle. This massive castle was established in the 16th century and today the full size of it can only be guessed. One thing remains certain: the view on the Atlantic ocean has been as impressive back then, as it is today.


Carrickabraghy Castle can be reached by foot over the “Causeway to the Castle”, a beautiful trail along the Pollan Strands (on the Wild Atlantic Way).
Another option is to drive over the Isle of Doagh and explore the Peninsula on the way to the castle. To take this route you have to leave the Wild Atlantic Way just before entering Ballyliffin.
