Ruins of Castleboro House

Castleboro House is the ruins of a stately home in Ireland. It was built in 1770 by Robert Shapland Carew, father of Robert Carew, 1st Baron Carew who was an Irish Whig Party politician and landowner. It was destroyed in 1923 by a fire started by local IRA sympathisers.

It is located in Castleboro, County Wexford, Ireland. It was built on the north side of the Forrestalstown river. An accidental fire took place in 1840 and destroyed everything but the west wing. It was rebuilt in 1858 and survived until 1923 when it was burnt out.[1] The estate was converted to farmland which it remains today.
