Erindale House.


Erindale House is a classic late 18th century brick house with many unique features and a distinct Gothic flavour. Built c.1800, with an ingenious plan made up of curved bows. The windows in the entrance front are pointed; the 1st floor centre window, and also 2 centre ground floor windows of the bows, being Venetian windows made Gothic. There is a very large semi-circular fanlight extending over the door and side lights, with elaborate glazing believed to be original.

Once the home of the Duke of Wellington, the house stands on a slight elevation overlooking the River Barrow with views westwards towards the Killeshin Hills. The setting is delightful through a tree lined graveled avenue and mature gardens and grounds to the front and enclosed high walled garden maintaining privacy to the rear.

The mature grounds include many mature specimen trees and an unusual charming summerhouse originally designed as a Gazebo over the River.
