In the 1800s the house passed to a nephew of the Goff family called Strangman Davis, who was very interested in photography. He produced the very first photographs of County Wexford. His photographs show Horetown House, the gardens, family members and guests. In 1918, the house was sold to a Major Lakin who had served in the Boer War and the Great War, and so ended the tenure of the Goff family at Horetown House. Tragedy struck when his wife Kathleen was killed when thrown from her horse while hunting. Major Lakin had the horse shot and one of its hooves mounted in memory of his wife, and the hoof survives in the house to this day.

Horetown House was bought by the Young family in 1961, who owned it until 2004. The Youngs opened Horetown House to the public for the first time as a guesthouse, restaurant and equestrian centre. The Youngs were responsible for introducing the sport of polocrosse to Ireland and the Equestrian Centre at Horetown became the headquarters of the sport in Ireland.

Kate and Niamh are now the custodians of this historic house and are deeply invested in maintaining the authenticity of the house and its grounds. Having restored the houses lead roof and the original sash windows over the Spring they are now looking forward to developing the gardens and restoring the Blossom Grove and developing a cut flower garden to supply their couples with homegrown flowers.
