forment l’ensemble de la loge de gardien de la maison de Cateltown, elles sont connues séparément sous
le nom de ‘la maison ronde’ (Round House), ‘la poterie’ (The pottery) et la maison de gardien (The Gate
house). Elles sont situées au bas d’une avenue bordée d'arbres menant à la maison Castletown, c’est la
plus importante maison de campagne de style palladien d’Irlande. Cette belle maison offre un séjour

History:
Three Gate Lodges grace the entrance to the magnificent
Palladian Castletown House, one of the most important
eighteenth century estates in Ireland. The Lodges are
known locally as The Round House, The Pottery and
The Gate House. These vernacular buildings form an
important part of the Celbridge streetscape and are in
fact a very important landmark for both locals and
visitors to the area.
The Gate Lodges form a significant and integral part of
the Castletown Estate. Unfortunately very little historical
information remains for the Gate Lodges. However the importance of Castletown House reflects upon the
importance of the Lodges.
The Round House, the lodge on the corner of the Maynooth Road with the bowed entrance was probably
the first house to be built on the site.
Trois maisons de gardiens ornaient l'entrée de la magnifique Maison Palladienne Castletown qui constitue
l'un des domaines les plus importants du XVIIIe siècle en Irlande. Les loges sont connues localement sous
le nom de Maison ronde (Round House), La Poterie et The Gate House. Ces bâtiments vernaculaires sont
des éléments importants du paysage de Celbridge et sont un point de repère très important pour les
habitants et les visiteurs de la région.
La loge de gardien est un bâtiment important du domaine de Castletown. Malheureusement, très peu
d'informations historiques sont disponibles aujourd’hui sur les loges de gardien. Cependant, l'importance
de la loge de Castletown House nous mène à réfléchir sur l'importance de celles-ci.
La loge ronde qui se situe au coin de la route de Maynooth dont
l’entrée est arquée est probablement la première maison qui fut
construite sur le site.
Originally the Lodge was a single square bay with a small square
projecting entrance. Part of the Lodge has a steep roof, heavy
roof beams with thick walls and corner fireplaces inside which all
suggest an early eighteenth century construction date. The Lodge
may even be earlier than Castletown House although there is no
building shown on the Noble and Keenan map of 1752. It is
likely that both the later two storey additions, one facing the Main
Street and the other facing the Maynooth Road were built before the Gate House for which we have a
definite construction date of 1783. The small square entrance was also replaced with a bowed projecting
entrance bay to the front which adds to the unique character of this building.
Family papers note that the gate piers were completed in 1783 and suggest that the lodge nearest the gate,
now called The Gate House, was also complete at this time and occupied by an elderly couple.
A l’origine, la loge était une simple baie carrée voûtée avec un petit carré saillant à l’entrée. Une partie
de la loge possède un toit à forte pente, de lourdes poutres sont utilisées pour la charpente, Les murs sont
épais et on trouve des cheminées d'angle à l'intérieur de la loge, tout cela suggère une date de début de
construction au environ du IX siècle. La Loge a peut-être même était construite plus tôt que la maison
Castletown bien qu'il n'y ait pas de bâtiment représenté sur la carte ‘Noble and Keenan’ de 1752. Il est
probable que les deux étages ajoutés plus tard, un en face de la rue principale et l'autre donnant sur la
route de Maynooth furent construits avant le Gate House pour lesquels nous avons la date de construction
précise de 1783. La petite entrée carrée a également été remplacée par une baie d'entrée de projection
inclinée vers l'avant ce qui ajoute un caractère unique a ce bâtiment.
Il est inscrit dans les papiers de la famille que les piliers du portail
ont été achevés en 1783 et suggèrent que la loge la plus proche du
portail, maintenant appelé ‘ The Gate House’, fut également terminée
à ce moment et occupée par un couple de personnes âgées.
Transcripts of the letters from Lady Louisa Conolly to Lady Sarah
Lennox reveal the following:1783, October 1st, Castletown:
'The piers to Celbridge Gate are finished, and what is extraordinary to
say of Paddy workmen in general is, that the Stone Cutters work and
iron work are so well finished for the sort of material that they are
done in, that it is quite pleasant. The rubbish of the Lodge, (which by
the way is a very comfortable one for the old couple that inhabit it) is
all cleared away and I am now actually employed in planting and
making it pretty all about…'
1783, 1er Octobre Castletown:
Les transcriptions des lettres de Lady Louisa Conolly à Lady Sarah Lennox révèlent ce qui suit: «Les piliers du portail de Celbridge sont terminés, et ce qui est extraordinaire à dire en général à propos
des ouvriers de Paddy, est que le travail de la pierre et du fer est très bien fini pour le type de matériel
dont ils sont faits, que c’est très agréable . Les déchets de la Loge, (qui soit dit en passant est très
confortable pour le vieux couple qui l'habitent) est tout levé et je suis en réalité maintenant employé pour
les plantations et pour la rendre jolie"
Not only a Landmark but a home Memories of the Mercier Family
In the 1950's the Mercier family lived in
the Lodges. The Trust was fortunate
enough to have the opportunity to meet
David Mercier and his sister Gwen who
lived in the lodges with their two sisters,
Gladys and Valerie and their parents.
They explained that originally the family
lived in the first lodge in the early 1950's
but then later in the 50's they moved to the second lodge where they had the luxury of an indoor bathroom. In the first lodge they only had an outdoor toilet in the shed at the back of the house.
In the 1950's there were only four cars in Celbridge. As there was so little trafffic, the Merciers and the
other children used to pour water on the main street, let it freeze and use it as an ice-skating rink.
In the late 1950's, the Mercier's moved again, this time to the third gatelodge. The lodges were furnished
very simply with lino on the floor which was polished every Saturday using Johnston's wax polish. All the
woodwork was painted either brown or cream.
To the right of the lodges there was a wrought iron gate which led to a garden their mother was really
proud of. Here she grew vegetables for the family.
Pas seulement un repère mais une maison - Souvenirs de la Famille Mercier
Dans les années 1950, la famille Mercier vivait dans les Loges. Le ‘Trust’ était assez fortuné pour avoir
l’opportunité de rencontrer David Mercier et sa soeur Gwen qui vivait dans les loges avec leurs deux
sœurs, Gladys, Valérie et leurs parents.
Ils ont expliqué qu’à l'origine la famille vivait dans la première loge au début des années 1950 mais plus
tard dans les années 50 ils ont déménagé à la deuxième loge où ils ont eu le luxe d'une salle de bain
intérieure. Dans la première loge ils n'avaient que des toilettes en plein air dans le hangar à l'arrière de la
maison.
Dans les années 1950 il n'y avait que quatre voitures à Celbridge. Comme il avait peu de trafffic, les
Mercier et les autres enfants avaient l’habitude de verser de l'eau sur la rue principale, de la laisser geler
et il l'utiliser ensuite comme une patinoire.
À la fin des années 1950, les Mercier ont déménagé à nouveau, cette fois à la troisième Gatelodge. Les
loges étaient meublées très simplement avec du parquet au sol, qui été poli tous les samedis avec de la cire
de chez Johnston. Toutes les boiseries ont été peintes en brun ou crème.
A droite des loges, il y avait une grille en fer forgé qui conduisait à un jardin dont leur mère était vraiment
fière. Ici, elle cultivait des légumes pour toute la famille.
The town of Celbridge has a deep historical background. Celbridge Abbey was built by Bartholomew Van
Homrigh, Lord Mayer of Dublin, in 1697. It was his daughter, Esther Van Homrigh, who was
immortalised as "Vanessa" by Jonathan Swift, who came regularly from his deanery to visit her. The Rock
Bridge, situated in the grounds of Celbridge Abbey, is reputed to be the oldest remaining stone bridge that
crosses the River Liffey. Celbridge is also the birthplace of Arthur Guinness, founder of the Guinness
Brewery family business
La ville de Celbridge a un fond historique important. Celbridge abbaye a été construite par Barthélemy
Van Homrigh, Lord Mayer de Dublin, en 1697. Ce fut sa fille, Esther Van Homrigh, qui fut immortalisé
comme «Vanessa» par Jonathan Swift, qui venait régulièrement depuis sa résidence de doyen pour lui
rendre visite. Le Rock Bridge, situé dans le parc de l'abbaye de Celbridge, est réputé pour être le plus
vieux pont de pierre restant qui traverse la rivière Liffey. Celbridge est aussi la ville natale d'Arthur
Guinness, le fondateur de l'entreprise Guinness Brewery famille
Restoration
The Lodges are known locally as The Round House,
The Pottery and The Gate House. These vernacular
buildings form an important part of the Celbridge
streetscape and are in fact a very important
landmark for both locals and visitors to the area.
While these protected structures had undergone
various alterations over the years including
replastering with pebbledash, widening of window
openings, internal alterations and a rear extension
their elevations remained mostly in tact and have
now
been
sensitively
restored
by
The
Irish
Landmark
Trust.
Les Loges sont connus localement sous le nom de Round House, The Pottery et The Gate House. Ces
bâtiments vernaculaires sont des éléments importants du paysage de Celbridge et sont un point de repère
très important pour les habitants et les visiteurs de la région. Bien que ces structures protégées ai subi
diverses modifications au fil des années (un replâtrage avec du ‘pebbledash’, l'élargissement des
ouvertures des fenêtres, des modifications internes et une extension arrière) leur agrandissement est resté
la plupart du temps intacte et elles ont été soigneusement restaurés par The Irish Landmark Trust.
The Gate Lodges form a significant and integral part of the Castletown Estate. Unfortunately very little
historical information remains for the Gate
Lodges. However the importance of Castletown
House reflects upon the importance of the
Lodges.
The Round House, the lodge on the corner of
the Maynooth Road with the bowed entrance
was probably the first house to be built on the
site.
Les maisons de gardiens sont des bâtiments
importants du domaine de Castletown.
Malheureusement, très peu d'informations
historiques sont disponibles sur ces loges.
Cependant, l'importance de celles de
Castletown nous fait réfléchir sur l'importance des Loges à l’époque.
La loge ronde qui se situe au coin de la route de Maynooth dont l’entrée est arquée est probablement la
première maison qui fut construite sur le site.
Originally the Lodge was a single square bay with a small square
projecting entrance. Part of the Lodge has a steep roof, heavy
roof beams with thick walls and corner fireplaces inside which all
suggest an early eighteenth century construction date. The Lodge
may even be earlier than Castletown House although there is no
building shown on the Noble and Keenan map of 1752. It is
likely that both the later two storey additions, one facing the Main
Street and the other facing the Maynooth Road were built before
the Gate House for which we have a definite construction date of
1783. The small square entrance was also replaced with a bowed
projecting entrance bay to the front which adds to the unique
character of this building.
Family papers note that the gate piers were completed in 1783
and suggest that the lodge nearest the gate, now called The Gate
House, was also complete at this time and occupied by an elderly
couple.

que la loge la plus proche du portail, maintenant appelé ‘ The Gate House’, fut également terminée à ce
moment et occupée par un couple de personnes âgées.
The Gate House was built as a simple three bay, two storey cottage, possibly with a side passage and
separate from the corner building. The space between the two buildings was later infilled to create a terrace
of three buildings. The centre Lodge is now known as The Pottery.
The Gate House and The Pottery retain most of their original features including timber sash windows and a
shared slate roof. The red brick dressings around the windows create an attractive effect against the
roughcast walls.
The group of three lodges are of considerable interest as a component of the Castletown estate, and form a
picturesque group at the south-west end of the avenue leading to Castletown House. They terminate the
vista of the Main Street to the north and introduce the gateway to Castletown House.
La maison de gardien a été construite simplement avec trois baies, sur deux étages, avec éventuellement
un passage latéral et séparé du bâtiment qui se trouve à l’angle. L'espace entre les deux bâtiments fut
ensuite bouché pour créer une terrasse pour les trois bâtiments. La Loge centrale est maintenant connu
sous le nom de The pottery (la poterie).
La maison de gardien et La Poterie ont conservé pour la plupart, leurs caractéristiques d'origine,
notamment leurs fenêtres à guillotine en bois et un toit en ardoise partagé par les 2 bâtiments. Les briques
rouges placées autour des fenêtres créent un effet de contraste sur les murs crépis.
Le groupe des trois pavillons, d'un intérêt considérable en tant que composante à part entière du domaine
de Castletown, forme un ensemble pittoresque à l'extrémité sud-ouest de l'avenue menant à la maison
Castletown. Elles terminent le panorama de la rue principale au nord et introduisent le chemin qui mène à
la maison Castletown
