Description
Detached L-plan two-bay single-storey former gate lodge, built c.1870, with porch to recessed bay. Now in use as a private house.

Segmental-arched timber panelled door. Cast-iron railings and gate to front.

Appraisal

This modest house is of apparent architectural design and detail. It retains many original features and materials, such as the segmental-arched openings, timber sash windows and carved timber eaves dentils. The setting of the house is enhanced by the cast-iron railings and gates. This gate lodge was formerly part of Dunboyne Castle demesne, which is located to the south-west.
