1830c – Strancally Castle, Co. Waterford

Architect: George Pain



Lewis in his Topographical Dictionary refers to Strancally Castle as “a modern castle, seat of J. Keily” in 1837. It stands in front of the original ruin of a Desmond castle, which contained an infamous murdering hole, which dispatched those who incurred the wrath of a Desmond to the river below. Still existing today, it was recently restored.
