Description A late 18th century house, which was the home of the Hyde family. In 1786 Wilson describes it as "a beautiful house, magnificent demesne, highly cultivated, the seat of Arthur Hyde". At the time of the sale of Castle Hyde in 1851 the house was occupied by Spencer Cosby Price, the brother-in-law of John Hyde. The house was valued at £115. Castle Hyde was bought by John Sadleir MP in trust [for Vincent Scully]. Major Chichester was the tenant from year to year in 1861. John Wrixon Becher, second son of Sir William Wrixon Becher of Ballygiblin, county Cork, subsequently lived at Castle Hyde. in the 1870s John R. Wrixon of Castle Hyde is recorded as the owner of 1,263 acres in county Cork. He was resident in 1906 when the buildings were valued at £96. The Irish Tourist Association Survey of 1942 indicated that the house was then "occupied by the military". Castle Hyde is now the home of dancer, Michael Flatley.
