About Ormond Castle & Tudor Manor

Ormond Castle & Tudor Manor is located at Castle Street in Carrick on Suir, Co. Tipperary.

Situated on the River Suir, Ormond Castle is one of the finest surviving Tudor manor houses in Ireland. It was built in the 1560s by Butler family, the Earls of Ormonde, it is the country's only major unfortified dwelling from that turbulent period. The Elizabethan section was added by Black Tom Butler, the 10th Earl of Ormonde, a loyal subject to Elizabeth Tudor. On his death, the Ormondes abandoned Carrick for Kilkenny.
