Located in the heart of the Liffey Valley, Castletown House is Ireland’s first and finest Palladian mansion. Built in the 1720s for William Conolly, Ireland’s wealthiest commoner, the extraordinary scale, decoration, plasterwork, and collections at Castletown, as presented today alongside the restored 18th-century designed parklands, walks,
café, and family events, continue to enliven this unique 

architectural masterpiece.
