Castletown, Co.Kildare, one if Ireland's finest Palladian mansions, remailed in the ownership of the Conolly family from the early eighteenth century, when the house was built, until it was sold in 1965. Home to an important collection of paintings, furniture and objects, many associated with the house since the eighteenth century, it is a place of great significance for ireland and for all students of European art and architecture. This catalogue of the paintings, furniture and decorative arts in Castletown incorporates the latest research by a number of eminent scholars, and is a major landmark in Irish country house studies which will be of permanent value to social historians and to all lovers of Ireland's cultural inheritance.
