The great semi fortified house at Portumna was build before 1618 by Richard Burke or de Burgo, the 4th Earl of Clanricarde.

Following its original plan the garden has been organically planted with fruit trees, flowers, herbs and vegetables, all combining to make it a treat to the senses. Portumna Castle is surrounded by the towns’ local attractions – Lough Derg, the River Shannon and Portumna Forest Park.
