Castle Durrow, Durrow, Co Laois

Castle Durrow, Durrow, Co Laois is one of Ireland’s most luxurious Country House Hotels located on the N8 Dublin to Cork Road (one hour from Dublin), in the midlands of Ireland, adjoining the quaint village of Durrow, Co Laois. Built by Capt. William Flower (later to become Viscount Ashbrook) in 1716 as his family home in the Midlands of Ireland, pre Palladian design and formal gardens. It is the creation of an Anglo-Irish landlord family, a relic of an age that has vanished forever. Castle Durrow is the first country house of importance that still stands in close to its original condition and is one of the few 18th century houses for which precise building records survive.
