“Charleville Castle Heritage Trust” runs the castle now. It was set-up in 1994. The Charleville Castle Heritage Trust is a voluntary not-for-profit organisation managed by Dudley Stewart with a team of core volunteers. The day-to-day running is handled by volunteers, who come from different countries including France, Canada, the United States of America and the United Kingdom, as well as other parts of Ireland to help out at the castle. The aims are the restoration and the sustainable conservation of the building.
