Killruddery House is an Irish manor house, located on the Greystones side of County Wicklow in Ireland. Built around 1618, it was once the home of the Earls of Meath. A magical place, famous for its architecture and its sublime formal gardens!
Killruddery Manor is situated on the R761, not far from the peaceful village of Greystones.
Built on a rather large plot of land, and very well laid out, the building is said to have been restored in the 19th century and to have seen its gardens enlarged during the same period.
Renovated in a pure Elizabethan style, the manor has the particularity of having a “Clock Tower”, which was erected in the courtyard by Reginald Brabazon, then 13th Earl of Meath. This clock has the peculiarity of propelling its pendulum by a hydraulic water jet system.
The Orangery also possesses an impressive collection of marble statues, collected between 1830 and 1850 by the owner of the manor house at the time.
Feel free to take a stroll through Killrudderry’s formal gardens: the manor house is one of the few to have such a well-preserved garden!
Note that the site has been used as a location for many film and TV series, including : Angela’s Ashes, The Tudors and Camelot.
