Ormond Castle is the best example of an Elizabethan manor house in Ireland. Built in the 1560s by Thomas, the 10th Earl of Ormond, the picturesque riverside castle is located in Carrick-on-Suir.

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'.
