Curt DiCamillo

Experience some of the most breathtaking places in Ireland! In this webinar—part travelogue, part virtual tour—architectural historian Curt DiCamillo takes us on a luscious, image-rich journey that showcases the 2019 American Ancestors Heritage Tour to Leinster and Munster. Just some of the highlights will be visits to Kilfane Glen, a magical 18th-century romantic-era garden; Tourin, home of the famous Jameson Irish whiskey family; Altamont Gardens, the jewel in Ireland’s gardening crown; Curraghmore, the ancestral home of the marquesses of Waterford; Castletown, Ireland’s largest and most architecturally influential 18th-century house; and Martinstown House, a Strawberry Hill Gothic Style cottage orné.
