Coolhull Castle is a fortified house by Coolhull in County Wexford, Ireland. It is also scheduled as a National Monument.

Coolhull Castle is to be found in the south of County Wexford near Bannow Bay, three miles southeast of Wellingtonbridge.

There are no historical references to Coolhull Castle although it is known that a John Devereux owned land at Coolhull in 1640.


Coolhull Castle has a four-storey service tower and three-storey rectangular block (hall house) attached with a hall at first-floor level. Both sections have Irish crenellations. There is a bartizan in the northeast. The tower doorway is protected by a murder-hole. Other features include fireplaces, garderobe and slop stone.[1][2][3]
