However, once again Michael and Mary Burke decided to further extend
Cloghan Castle. In the December of 1996 further restoration began,
6,000 sq. ft was added to the original building.
January 1999 saw the completion of one of Ireland's
most desirable tranquil destinations. The result is Cloghan Castle,
returned to its former glory, and it is now regarded as one of Ireland's
major historical monuments of the Norman period. Indeed, the excellent
workmanship and first class attention to historical and constructional
detail have been widely acclaimed and publicised.
Cloghan Castle is a testament to generations gone
by, to the Burke Family and their determination, and will stand
as a living monument for the future.
