The site was previously occupied by Grace's Castle, a structure dating back to the 13th century. It was used as a prison from 1566 and some of features of these aspects of the earlier building still survive at basement level. The current building, which was designed by Sir Jerome Fitzpatrick in the Neoclassical style, was completed in 1792. It was originally designed as a judicial facility, but following the implementation of the Local Government (Dublin) Act 1993, it also became the meeting place of Kilkenny County Council. By the second half of the 20th century the county council had moved to new offices at John's Green House.
