Appraisal

This gate lodge is of apparent architectural design and detailing, and makes a notable contribution to the surrounding landscape. The building is articulated by fine architectural detailing, such as the pediment porch, carved stone doorcase and ashlar limestone dressings. The lodge forms part of an interesting group with Dowth Hall and stables.
