Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.
That'd be this job, I reckon: firstname.lastname@example.org,-8.4191477,296m/data=!3m1...
It's far enough from Clare.
Anyway, to answer the Q, it's gone. You can just see the ruins in the satellite image.

Convamore and the Earls of Listowel
Beside the gate to the Church of Ireland there once stood the entrance to Convamore, the County Cork estate of the wealthy Hare family, Earls of Listowel. William Hare MP bought the Convamore estate around the year 1800. Through a clever combination of business and politics he later gained the titles Viscount Ennismore and Earl of Listowel.
The enormous mansion stood within an impressive demesne. The grounds contained a tennis court and a golf course and there were twenty-five full-time employees: cooks, chambermaids, nannies, nurses, butlers, gardeners, ghillies, and gamekeepers. The family held estates of 30,000 acres in Cork and Kerry. William, the third and last Earl to live here was a Lord-in-waiting to Queen Victoria and a veteran of the Crimean War. The magnificent blue cedar, which still stands at Convamore, was planted in 1885 by Edward, Prince of Wales who later became King Edward VII of England.
The Troubles: The War of Independence in Ballyhooly
Little now remains of Convamore which was burnt by the IRA during troubled times in March 1921. The IRA’s claim that Lord Listowel was “an aggressively anti-Irish person” was the cause of great distress to the elderly Earl as he was popular in Ballyhooly and had lived there for 60 years. In retaliation, British soldiers blew up the Castle Tavern pub, situated at the crossroads, south of the River Blackwater.
I think this is "the magnificent blue cedar" of 1885 and Edward VII, which would be just out of shot in this photo, possibly where those sticks are on the right ... streetview - goo.gl/maps/52qGGpHuPZw
The Earl of Listowel and household in the 1911 census, and in 1901
Convamore bridge, a short distance from the house. The Earl was involved with the railway, and had this bridge built for acces to the fields, instead of a crossing.
"The house, one of the first in Ireland to feature large plate glass windows, was much praised by contemporaries."
"One fine summer evening in 1921 three country houses in North County Cork were burned down in retaliation for a reprisal. Convamore was the first to go. Lord Listowel's elderly niece, Mrs. Wrixon-Beecher was in the house at the time. She survived but was found wandering dazedly around the house without her false teeth, which perished in the fire."
