Curraghchase House is part of the 600 acre Curraghchase Forest Park which has been maintained by the State since the 1950s. The Forest Park is open to the public and is well worth a visit. The house as it stands today was built in the 18th century and its most famous resident was well known poet Aubrey De Vere.

The exterior of the house is well looked after and is mostly free from ivy but this is in contrast to the overgrown and dilapidated interior. An accidental fire on Christmas Eve in 1941 destroyed most of the house and its contents and it looks like not much has changed since then apart from the slow but relentless advance of ivy and other vegetation. It is sad to see such a grand house in such a poor state.
