Description : Fine demesne for earlier house northeast of present house. Surviving informal landscape park for important house c.1798 by architect Francis Johnston; noted in 'Gardener's Magazine' (1827) as "one of the most magnificent demesnes in the kingdom". House set on elevated site in parkland, woodland and shelter belts beyond. Though the house in its setting is intact and the demesne retains its original layout, there have been internal alterations over time. Fine mature trees and more recent planting near the house. Coillte manages much of the woodland and part is a forest park, with public access. Traditional farmland, but a golf course and many dwellings built within the property are imposed on the original. http://www.townleyhall.ie/
