The house at Curraghmore is centred on the old medieval tower house of the Le Poer family to which various additions and renovations have been added. Both Smith, writing in 1774 and Wilson, writing in 1786, offer detailed contemporary descriptions of the house and demesne . At the time of Griffith's Valuation, it was valued at £210. In 1906 it was valued at £200. The 1943 ITA survey describes it in detail, stating that it was one of the finest properties in Munster, if not in all of Ireland. It is still extant and occupied by the Le Poer Beresford family. See www.curraghmorehouse.ie for more information.
