Guide price for Rocketts castle estate, Portlaw, County Waterford was recently reduced from €6 million to €4.75 m. Auctioneers savills’ sell this magnificent property at 250ac private Treaty.

Located overlooking the river Suir, Rocketts castle, which dates back to 1863, has undergone extensive renovation and cosmetic repairs.

Rocketts castle began life in the settlement of Norman built a rockette or a family in La Rochelle. During the reign of Charles 1, he fell to the Earl of Ormond, and after Cromwell had finished his business in Ireland, he gave the property to sir Algernon may who in a fit of humility renamed it Mayfield. In 1787 was acquired by the Medlycott family, who remained there until the 20th century.

In 1861, they commissioned the architect Galway Samuel Roberts to build a house that is still near the castle ruins.


In 1997, the Russian oligarch, Valery Zakharenkov, bought the place and kept it for eight years, spending money renovating the entire property. Splurging on 700 000 Euro for Waterford glass chandeliers, gives an idea of the scale of investment.

It includes three living rooms, a library, two Sunny rooms, a Billiards room, bar, six bedrooms and six bathrooms. In addition, round the castle is understood to date from 1212 – lies in the Eastern part of the estate.


There is a Fishing Lodge, equestrian facilities including eight stables, a Polo field and club, and the hunter trial course. Mixed forests extend to 59ac.

The rest of the land is in tillage and permanent pastures.
