Image of Lismore Castle gatehouse

 

 

 

 

Lismore Castle, converted into a grand mansion by Boyle's ambitious father, the 'Great Earl of Cork', who became Lord High Treasurer of Ireland in 1631.

The gatehouse with its steeply pitched roof was built c.1610 and heightened in 1622. Other parts of the castle were reconstructed in the nineteenth century.
