Atmospheric Irish gentry house and wooded riverside estate

Built in the 1820s, this handsome Irish gentry house is surrounded by its 130-hectare (320-acre) wooded riverside estate.

The former home of the MacGeough Bond family, a tour of this Neo-classical masterpiece reveals it is unchanged since 1900. The eclectic interior still evoking the family's tastes and interests.

Outside there are sweeping vistas, superb spring bulbs, scenic walks and fascinating courtyard displays.

A second-hand bookshop, adventure playground and Lady Ada's award-winning tea-room provide retreats for children and adults alike.
