Castle Grove was built in 1695 by the Grove family, who came here in 1656 however, the original Ireland country house was burnt during the siege of Londonderry in 1690. It was here also that the famous Daniel O'Connell was introduced to the powers that be that led to him being an elected MP at the time. Castle Grove also had a big influence in the life of General Richard Montgomery whose fame still lives on - the American War of Independence. During famine times the Groves both fed and educated all tenant families. We all enjoy the welcoming atmosphere that lives on from such generosity and is complimented by the "Cead Mile Failte" that awaits you to make your stay a memorable one.
