McDermott’s Castle was built in 1184 on Castle Island, which is a small island found in Lough Key, Ireland. The castle was built by the Mac Diarmada dynasty, but was sadly ruined by a fire that was ignited by lighting striking the fortress. It was rebuilt in 1235, and in 2018, it went up for sale for about $100,000. However, it was not sold and was returned to private Irish ownership.
