Ash Hill Towers
The residence of a branch of the Coote family in the 18th century, possibly held from the Barons Carbery. Ash Hill is referred to by Wilson as the seat of Chudleigh Coote in 1786. Bought by Eyre Evans from Chidley Coote in 1794 (see sale rental 6 July 1878). Eyre Evans held the property in fee throughout the first half of the 19th century. The Ordnance Survey Field Name Book describes this house as having "a most superb new front with towers at each end". At the time of Griffith's Valuation the buildings were valued at £50. Bence Jones writes that Ash Hill Towers became the residence of John Henry Weldon in the later 19th century. The Irish Tourist Association surveyor wrote in 1943 that the property was owned by Captain P.M. Lindsay, nephew of John H. Weldon, who bought the house from the Evans family in 1880. Still extant, this house is the centre of a stud.

Originally the home of Thomas Evans, a younger brother of the 1st Baron Carbery, and of his son Eyre Evans. Mary, sister of Eyre Evans, married George Bruce in the mid 18th century. The Castle was subsequently leased by the Evans to the Bruces and it remained the home of the Bruces until the late 19th century. Described by Lewis as “a handsome castellated mansion in the later English style”. Reduced in size in the early 20th century. The Irish Tourist Association Survey of the 1940s noted that the buildings, at that time the residence of the Keane family, were not in good repair. However, the building continues to be occupied.
