    Currently owned by the iconic Slazenger family, the estate dates back to the 13th century.

    In 1974, the house was gutted by a fire. By 1996, it was partially restored to its original glory and is now open to the public along with the breath-taking gardens. It is recognised as one of Ireland’s top spots to visit.
