Glinsk Castle was the principal residence of Lord of Clonconway, Mac David Burke and was built in the mid 17th century, on the site of an earlier castle.
The castle is reputed as being the last castle ever built in Ireland as many lords started to build houses instead of castles from the 17th century onward. The castle which was once surrounded by a bawn (of which there are little remains now), shows some fine architectural features such as its chimney shafts, its mullioned windows and its square towers.
The castle fell into ruins after a fire spread within the castle.
