Another unusual building of interest in Cahersiveen is the old Royal Irish Constabulary (RIC) barracks. The old barracks, now a heritage centre, was designed and constructed between 1869 and 1871.
According to various old stories the barracks was built from the plans for another British barracks in India, which got mixed up. Is this true? who knows?
Is it worth visiting and paying the entrance fee? I will leave that up to yourself, but it's worth a look from the outside.
