Oakley Park, formerly Celbridge House, was built in 1724 by Arthur Price when he was vicar of Celbridge. The house is thought to have been designed by the architect Thomas Burgh. Dr. Prices steward at Oakley Park was Richard Guinness, who was acclaimed for his brewing talents. It was Richards son, Arthur, who went on to establish the infamous Guinness Brewery in Dublin. In 1787, Oakley Park became home to George and Lady Saragh Napier. In 1840 Oakley Park was sold to the Maunsell family. The house changed ownership many times and fell into disrepair. In 1935, Oakley Park was purchased by the Guiney family, then sold to the Christian Brothers, who planned to open a school there. However, their plan did not come true.
The home is open Wednesday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., or by appointment.
