Mount Congreve Estate is an 18th Century Georgian Estate situate in the townland of Killoteran, otherwise Butlerstown and near the village of Kilmeaden in the County of Waterford.
The Congreve family originated from Staffordshire, England, The first member of the Congreve family to settle in Waterford was Reverend John Congreve. The grandson of Reverend John Congreve, also called John, was responsible for the building of Mount Congreve Estate in 1760, subsequent to him holding the position of the High Sheriff of the County of Waterford.
Local and well-renowned architect Mr. John Roberts designed the beautiful building which is now a synonymous structure with the fabulous and world-renowned Mount Congreve Estate and Gardens.
As part of the Estate, the Congreve family ran a very active dairy farm, which is commonly known as Mount Congreve Farm. The Congreve family remained in the area for six generations until Ambrose Congreve died in 2011. Thereafter Mount Congreve Farm, comprising of almost 400 acres was transferred into private ownership. The farm is fully operational today and is the home of a large dairy herd and holds some of the finest views of the area and the magnificent River Suir Valley.
