Ormond CastleCastle ParkCarrick On SuirTipperaryRepublic of Ireland
Please note due to essential refurbishment works, the Castle will be closed to the public for 2015. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.Ormond Castle is the best example of an Elizabethan manor house in Ireland. Built in the 16th Century, this manor house fronts a larger complex dating from the 14th century. Thomas Butler, 10th Earl of Ormond added the ‘new’ north range, which became known as the Manor House, to the existing buildings. It boasts a typical manor house layout which includes a magnificent long gallery. Perhaps the most outstanding feature of the Tudor house is the decorative plasterwork which provides some of the finest early examples of the craft in Ireland, including plasterwork portraits in the 'state rooms'.Guided Tours: Access by guided tour only: Duration: 45 minutesLeaflet/Guide book: English, Irish, French, German, Italian, Spanish.Restricted access for visitors with disabilities.
