Leamaneh Castle
The ruins of the castle of Leamaneh are in the vicinity of the Bruren in County Clare, Island. The castle was originally a base with a tower house of several floors, built around 1480, probably by Turlogh Donn, one of the last Kings of Ireland and a direct descendant of Brian Boru. The name of the castle "Leamaneh" is believed to be derived from the Irish "Leim one Eich" which translated into English means "horse jumping". On our tour we could not go down to visit, we saw it on our way to the Cliffs of Moher, and the driver told us a bit about it.
