Our Story

Our story

A single estate since 1167

Anglo-Norman invasion

The story begins over 850 years ago with the Anglo-Norman invasions of Wales and Ireland


Curraghmore estate

Four Norman Knights sailed with the mighty warrior Strongbow to seize land in the southeast of Ireland. One of the brothers, Sir Roger Le Puher, captured the land known as Curraghmore.


Building Bridges

Curraghmore is home to the oldest bridge in Ireland. It was built to enable King John’s safe passage over the River Clodiagh. King John never arrived, but the structure lasts to this day and is used daily.


Making hay (barns)

Architect William Tinsley commissioned by the 5th Marquis of Waterford built three impressive hay barns and grain lofts in circa 1840

The Mad Marquis
