A 12th century castle remodelled in Victorian times and set in extensive
parklands which was the principal seat of the Butler family, Marquesses and Dukes
Due to major restoration works, the central
block now includes a library, drawing room, and bedrooms decorated in 1830s splendour
as well as the beautiful Long Gallery.
The old Castle
kitchen operates as a tea room during the summer. A suite of former servants
rooms is the Butler Art Gallery, which mounts frequently changing exhibitions
of contemporary art.
