Castletown Castle Bunclody Road, Carlow - A small 19th Tudor/Gothic
house incorporating a truncated tower-house which was greatly altered by
William Roberston in 1835. Now a fine neo-gothic castle with beautifully
cut ashlar granite featuring the usual ornate Robertson hallmarks.
original castle had several owners including the Kavanaghs, Bagenals,
George Carew and the Earl of Kildare. Its owner for a short period in
the I780's was the wayward Thomas "Buck" Whaley, who squandered a
fortune of £60,000 and estates in three counties before he died, almost
penniless, in 1800, aged 34. Castletown has been owned by the Monahan
family since 1932.
