Thomas L. Cooke visited Kinvara in 1842/’43. He explored the ancient ruin beside Dunguaire…and its cellar. As children, we were warned to stay away from the place on account of the ‘swallow hole’. That, and a fast moving tide, could easily end you.

Near the castle already described, but separated from it however by an inlet of the sea, are the ruins of another yet more ancient castle, denominated Dun Guariagh, which signifies “Guaire’s Stronghold.” (I have at present an ancient bottle which was found in a Submarine cellar in this Castle. It is covered with Barnacle shells. – 1860 – T.L. Cooke).
