Shanmuckinish Castle, nr Ballyvaughan, Co Clare

The castle doesn’t seem too bad from the road, but the entire north side has collapsed into the sea. Interesting for the thick batter at the tower base, the machicolation above the mullioned window, and the intramural passages and vaulted rooms visible from the exposed northern side
