Manorhamilton Castle around which the town of Manorhamilton grew has a dramatic and colourful history, stories of which live on in the town to this day. The Castle overlord Sir Frederick Hamilton was to become a bye-word for cruelty down the centuries as a result of his brutality in suppressing uprisings led by the O’Rourke Chieftains whose land he had seized. On display is a permanent exhibition including artefacts from the 17th century, replica period costumes, furniture, a Castle model and other interesting items and information. Manorhamilton Castle and Heritage Centre is open all the year round to the general public and to organised tours. A tour of the recently restored Castle ruins and grounds can be taken, conducted by an experienced and informative guide.
