Site Significance: Castleboro House and Demesne is deemed to be of architectural, artistic, historical, social and technical value. Castleboro House was designed by Daniel Robertson. Castleboro House was known as a Venetian palace that was built on the site of a former house which was destroyed by fire some years previously. Castleboro House is of the neo-Palladian plan form centred on an impressive “porte Cochere” demonstrating good quality workmanship in silver grey granite. The Castleboro Demesne in its entirety continues to contribute positively to the landscape. Castleboro Demesne has historic connections to The Carew Family which can be dated back to the time of the Norman invasion at Baginbun, Bannow, Co. Wexford
