Castletown House
Celbridge, Co. Kildare
Magnificent Palladian Style Mansion

This stunning house was built in the 1720s by William Connolly, who later became an important political figure in early 18th century Ireland. His architectural legacy, Castletown was re-invigorated in the mid- to late 18th century by his grandnephew Tom and wife Lady Louisa Lennox.

The extraordinary scale, decoration, plasterwork and collections at Castletown, as presented today, continue to bring to life this unique period in Ireland’s history.

The Office of Public Works (OPW), who manage the property and parklands, are collaborating with a number of organisations to ensure that a wide public audience can share in the future of Castletown.
