Ballynacurriga Castle is a fine four story castle which is said to be older than 1585. It is located in Dunmanway, County Cork and is a large four storey tower house with a short section of defensive wall remaining at the north east corner.

Ballynacurriga Castle was built by Randal Hurley who married Catherine Cullinane. She may be the person whose initials are given as CC in a window inscription on the top floor. The carvings are decorations in these windows and are the most unusual features of the castle.

The top floor was used as a church until 1815 and there are remnants of a round corner tower of the bawn outside the entrance.
