Ormonde Castle- Opening Times and Details

Ormonde Castle stands to the east of Carrick-on-Suir and was built over several centuries. The oldest section dates from the 15th century, but the noteworthy manor house wasn’t added until 100 years later. This was when Thomas, Earl of Ormonde, returned from England with new designs on the property. He proceeded to commission one of the finest examples of an Elizabethan manor house in Ireland.

The Manor House, which has been beautifully restored, has two storeys with a gabled attic, rows of mullioned windows with curved-headed lights, and steep brick gables with slender finials. The castle remained in the Butler family until 1947, and is now owned by the state.
