The largest private demesne in Ireland

Curraghmore House in Waterford is the historic home of the 9th Marquis of Waterford. His ancestors (the de la Poers) came to Ireland from Normandy after a 100-year stopover in Wales around 1170. 2,500 acres of Curraghmore, Portlaw, Co. Waterford gardens, woodland and fields make it the largest private demesne in Ireland.

It features one of the tallest trees in Ireland, the oldest bridge in Ireland dating back to 1205, twelve miles of famine relief boundary walls, and an original castle tower. Group tours available by appointment.
