Appraisal

The plan and form of this gate lodge is the same as the gate lodge at Boyne Valley House in Drogheda. Designed in the Tudor style, it retains many interesting features and materials, such as the projecting entrance porch and timber windows. This gate lodge, together with the main house, outbuildings, and entrance gates, form an interesting architectural group of mid nineteenth-century structures.
