Garrettstown House History

Early 18th Century Neo Classical Estate

The House and buildings were commenced 1702, by the Kearney Family.

The original plans seem to be for a Palladian layout, but these were altered mid-way, resulting in what is often described as Georgian Irish experimental architecture.

The main house is unique in that it faces it's own Coach House, and both buildings have identical facades.

The inner cobbled Yard is surrounded on three sides by what were once the servants quarters, and service buildings.

The main House itself is now ruinous, but the Coach House and outbuildings are all serviceable, and under restoration.

There are many fine features to admire on a walk around the grounds, including the Orangery, where tropical plants were showcased, and a round tower folly.
(See if you can identify the outdoor amphitheater!)

For a fuller description, a brief talk, and to answer any questions you may have, please call to reception upon arrival.
