Carrickabraghy Castle (Carraig Brachai) stands on a rocky outcrop on the Isle of Doagh just past the northern end of Pollan bay beach. It is also close to Doagh Famine Village and Doagh Beach.
The castle was built in the 16th century and has spectacular views of the Donegal hills and headlands. It was one of the O’Doherty strongholds and stands on the site of a pre-Viking settlement which was recorded in the Annals of Ireland.
The castle was just one in a network of castles built to defend and protect the lands belonging to the O’Doherty clan in the mid to late 1500s
Carrickabraghy Castle, one of the iconic sites of the historic Inishowen peninsula, was in ruins and it is now looked after by The Carrickabraghy Restoration Society.
You can find out more about the history of the castle and the O’Doherty clan on their website, as well as being able to donate to the project.
