Duckett's Grove is one of the finest examples of a Gothic revival castle and its towers and turrets can be seen from miles around. It decorates and enhances the landscape and was saved from complete ruin in 2005 having been acquired by Carlow County Council.

The house had been the home of the Duckett family for 3 centuries and was once part of a 12,000 acre estate. The last Duckett family member left the house around 1916 and it was in private ownership from the 1930s. In recent years, vegetation was cleared and the structure stabilised and it is now open to the public as a site of great historical and cultural significance. Thanks to John Farrell for the internal photo of the chimney pots.
