Castle Brochure inside

Left panel above: Huntington Castle, Clonegal, County Carlow, the ancient seat of the Esmonde family is today one of Ireland's historical treasures. Presently lived in by the Durdin-Robertsons, descendants of the Esmondes, the Castle is set in picturesque countryside at the foot of the Blackstairs Mountains. Built in 1625 on the site of a former 14th century stronghold and abbey, this imposing granite keep served as a garrison on the strategically important Wexford to Dublin route.

Center panel above: Like every good Castle, Huntington has its resident ghosts. From monks to soldiers, bishops and a lady's maid, it is also visited by the ghost of Ailish O'Flaherty, first wife of Lord Esmonde and grand-daughter of Grace O'Malley, the Pirate Queen.

Right panel above: In the gardens there is an ancient Yew walk and the extensive castle grounds offer a wide variety of flora and fauna, including a number of 'champion' trees. With stories and artefacts relating to a diverse selection of historical characters from Cromwell to Milton, the half hour guided tours provide many more facts and details about the fascinating history of the house and family.
