"The Castle of Mitchelstown, built for the Earl of Kingston, at an expense of £100,000, from designs by Mr. Pain, architect, is probably the finest baronial residence in Ireland. It is built on the site of an ancient castle erected by Gilbert Fitz-John...This ancient building was destroyed in the wars of 1641. The modern castle is built of the finest grey limestone and marble...and modelled after the royal castle at Windsor."

Extract from William Hemphill's 'Stereoscopic Illustrations of Clonmel'.
