Duckett's Grove was built around 1830 by William Duckett in an estate covering more than 5,000 acres (20 km2) of the County Carlow countryside, and was originally a two-storey Georgian country house. Beginning in 1818, it was redesigned in a castellated Gothic revival style by Thomas Cobden for John Davidson Duckett. This extension of the building was funded by a number of marriages into wealthy merchant families, and resulted in the Georgian features being removed or hidden. The building incorporates a number of towers and turrets of varying shapes – round, square and octagonal. One tall octagonal turret rises from the structure. Duckett's Grove is elaborately ornamented with oriels and niches containing statues. Several statues on pedestals surrounded the building and lined the approaches. The house is situated in the townland of Rainstown, approximately 10 km from Carlow and 9 km from Tullow, with the broader estate comprising several large townlands and parts of others. At its height the house had a staff of eleven men to maintain the grounds alone.
