The modest form and scale of this gate lodge is enlivened by the castellated wall to the entrance elevation, and by the angled recessed porch. The building retains many interesting features and materials, such as the brick and limestone dressings, timber sash windows, timber panelled door and decorative overlight. The gate lodge forms part of a group with the demesne related structures of Slane Castle.
