Our View

Built in the 1820s, this handsome Irish gentry house sits surveying the surrounding 320 acre wooded riverside estate. The former home of the McGeough family, a tour of this neo-classical masterpiece reveals it is unchanged since 1900 - the eclectic interior still evoking the family's Edwardian tastes and interests. Outside there are sweeping vistas, superb spring bulbs, scenic walks and fascinating courtyard displays. A second-hand bookshop, adventure playground and the coffee shop provide retreats for adults and children alike.

About The area

Discover County Armagh

From its highest point up on Slieve Gullion to its lower extremity at Lough Neagh, County Armagh’s scenery packs a punch. The county claims St Patrick himself as one of its sons – the Irish patron saint was Bishop of Armagh in the fifth century – and calls itself the 'Ecclesiastical Capital of Ireland'. You might also have heard it called 'Orchard County', and you’ll see why when you take your first sip of local cider.
