History

Prumplestown House is originally believed to be a 17th-century hunting lodge owned by the then Duke of Leinster.

The house with open-plan basement/wine cellar was completed in its present form circa 1856 and was sold in 1897 to the Wright family whose descendants are the present owners.

They farmed prize-winning Shorthorn cattle and these were later replaced by Herefords.

In the 1970s, the late Alan Wright - a grandson of the original owner - introduced from Austria, the Simmental cattle into Ireland for the first time.

Location

There is much to offer in the area with towns of Carlow and Athy nearby and within easy reach of Co. Wicklow known as the “Garden of Ireland”.

Castledermot village is approximately 3kms from Prumplestown; it has a range of local schools and churches are located nearby.
