Though small, the village of Glanworth is home to impressive ruins. Found just 10km northwest of Fermoy, County Cork, the village boasts a 13th-century castle that belonged to the Roche family, which at the time controlled much of the territory of North Cork. Among the remains, visitors will find a large rectangular building and tower. Nearby, there is also the hall-like church of a Dominican friary established by the Roches in 1475.
