The tower house is in a remarkable state of preservation and is of the classic style represented by tower houses built c1300 on the borders of The Pale, with distinctive architectural features which have become the subject of new research, as yet unpublished (2007). The Castle was burned by order of LJs William Parsons and John Borlase in 1641. It is one of two castles at Tipperstown reported in the census of 1659 as having been burned and reduced in value from £120 to £40.
