Set on a rock in the middle of the River Suir is a small square 13th century court with rectangular towers at three corners, a small round tower at the fourth corner, and on the south side a rectangular gatehouse later converted into a tower house, a new gateway being built alongside it. A 16th century crosswall divides off a middle court from a long southern outer court not accessible to visitors. On the north side is a projecting circular well tower of the 17th century. The hall on the west side is mostly a 19th century reconstruction.
