The Castle of Moygara was the principle fortress and dwelling of the O Gara family. The castle stands in a slight eminence with great views, particularly to the south.

The castle is a multi period construction, comprising 4 walls, 4 corner towers, the remains of a gatehouse, all from the 16/17th century and an earlier towerhouse (14th/15th century). Geophysical survey has revealed a number of anomalies both inside and outside the castle walls, including a pre-castle, oval ditched enclosure, possibly contemporary with the towerhouse.
