> Villages > Clonaslee


A largely 19th century village, one of it's finest buildings is the Catholic Church (1813), with it's iron gates and gate piers oddly tucked in behind other buildings.
The old Church of Ireland (1814) is now a heritage centre and library. Nearby are the ruins of Brittas House (1869), a gothic mansion set in the remains of grounds still containing exceptional specimens of trees, shrubs and plants.

About 3 kilometres south are the ruins of Castlecuffe, Sir Charles Coote's early 17th century fortified dwelling. Nearby Castletown is home to the Dunne clan rally.

Brittas Lake has a pleasant nature walk and picnic area.
