Duckett's Grove is a ruined 19th-century great house and former estate in County Carlow, Ireland. Belonging to the Duckett family, it was formerly at the centre of a 12,000-acre (49 km2) estate, that dominated the landscape of the area for hundreds of years. The interior of the house was destroyed by a fire in the 1930s and is now inaccessible. The surrounding gardens, including two inter-connecting walled gardens, are now managed by Carlow County Council and open as a public park.

Really quiet when we visited in April. The gardens are being prepared for summer. The buildings are pretty amazing with unique history. The man in the candle shop gave us a good run down. Part of Ireland's ancient east trail, it's well worth a stop if you're in the area.
This is fantastic and relaxing place. I can feel a harmony and relaxation there.We came in the evening when no people and tourists were visible and enjoyed to the full.Of course shops and cafes were closed but place itself and walk around it was just fantastic. It is very photogienic spot as well.And it looks fantastic
Lovely ruins of an old castle. Carlow Vintage show was on the day I visited. All make and shapes of vintage cars, bikes, lorries, tractors and campervans. Lots of side stalls to browse through. Some food stands too. And the coffee shop was busy too. Nice gardens to stroll around and traffic management was very good. An one way system.
Beautiful rustic, ruined manor that is surrounded by lush fields and several old and almost spiritual copies of trees. The Manor is from a more recent time in history, from the 18th century, but has a more medieval castle style to it. It has a haunting feel to it, which works for the local legends focused around the manor. I highly recommend a visit!
I grew up here riding horses so I know every nook and cranny. Soaked in history. Peaceful. Beautiful walled gardens to stroll in. Events also run here from time to time. Car shows, Rescue fund raising days, Christmas fairs etc.. Beautiful little cafe in the courtyard. Well worth a visit. A must see.
Really a good place to enjoy weekend with family and friends. I liked it.
Wonderful place to visit especially with families. Decent if small coffee shop on site, good gardens and a great ruin of a castle to explore. Safe and fun outung
This place is amazing, has beautiful gardens around the back, the house itself is quite creepy and there's a banshee legend attached to the house. Well worth a visit. There's also a café around the side and ample free parking
A hidden gem. Well worth the drive out. The walks are short but nice the walled garden is well maintained and nice when in bloom. Tea rooms have a nice selection. Bathrooms are ok abit hit and miss at times.
When we went there, there was barley anyone. It look like there might be a place for coffee or tea, but it wasn't open. It was a nice old mansion, would've been nice to have more information about the history. I would recommend going there, if you are interested in seeing older buildings. You can push a wheelchair up to the house but that's about it. It's also a really short stop.
