The House at Mount Stewart

When the creative and imaginative Edith, Lady Londonderry, made Mount Stewart her home in 1921, she created something truly unique. So delighted with her new home, she wrote to her husband Charles, ‘this is the most divine house, why do we live anywhere else!’

Beautiful rooms and treasures 

Mount Stewart has been the home of the Stewart family, Marquesses of Londonderry for over 250 years. After a major restoration project, it now reflects the era when Charles, 7th Marquess of Londonderry, and his wife Edith, made it their much-loved Irish home from the 1920s to the 1950s.
