Ballyquirk (Baile Uí Chuirc in Irish)[1] is a townland in the Barony of Ormond Lower, County Tipperary, Ireland. It is located in the civil parish of Lorrha, north of Carrigahorig.

The present Ballyquirk Castle is a single storey over basement property with three bays and a rear tower. It is all that is left following alterations made in the nineteenth century to the original two storey over basement property which featured four towers. Ruins of a still earlier castle stand nearby. The castle appears on North Tipperary County Council's Record of Protected Structures (ref S69)[2]

The woods at Ballyquirk form a part of Borrisokane Forest which consists of several widely dispersed small areas of woodland managed by Coillte, the state sponsored forestry company.[3]
