The ruins of Castleboro House
The ruins of Castleboro House
It was in its heyday one of the finest country houses in Leinster, its terraced gardens to the south second only to those at Powerscourt in Co. Wicklow. It was built in 1770 by Robert Shapland Carew whose son Robert Carew the 1st Baron rebuilt and remodelled the surviving west wing after the disastrous fire of 1840. Its final destruction occurred in 1923 when it was fired by local IRA sympathisers.
