Description
Detached five-bay single-storey former house with attic accommodation, built c.1760, now in use as an outbuilding. Hipped thatched roof with corrugated-iron covering and a red brick chimneystack. Roughcast rendered walls. Timber sash windows with stone sills. Ranges of outbuildings enclose cobbled courtyard. Pair of wrought-iron gate to site.

Appraisal

This former house is an interesting example of the vernacular tradition in Ireland retaining its original scale and form. It retains many interesting features and materials, such as the thatched and corrugated-iron roof and timber sash windows. Vernacular structures are becoming increasingly rare in both urban and rural areas in Ireland.
