Shane's Castle ruins
A terrace was built about the year 1800, and in 1812 work was started to rebuild the castle to the designs of John Nash but the castle was devastated by a fire in 1816 and work abandoned. Only Nash's camellia house survives. In the 1860s a second house was built by Charles Lanyon and William Henry Lynn of Lanyon, for the 1st Lord O'Neill.
The castle is used extensively in the HBO television series Game of Thrones.
