Curraghmore House

Ireland»Munster»Curraghmore House

Curraghmore House: Curraghmore, meaning great bog, is the last of 4 castles built by the de la Poer family after their arrival in Ireland in 1167. The Castle walls are about 12 feet thick and within one, a tight spiral stairway connects the lower ground floor with the roof above.

Some 2,500 acres of formal gardens, woodland and grazing fields make this the largest private demesne in Ireland and one of the finest places to visit in Ireland.

During this time visitors are free to marvel at the Formal Gardens which surround the house, the lake with its resident swans, some of Ireland's most remarkable trees in the estate's arboretum, miles of beautiful river walks, a Japanese garden laid out by the present Lady Waterford and of course the exceptional Shell House.
