Located beside the Shannon River, this former house is a striking feature of Banagher's streetscape and one of the grandest structures within the town. Of particular architectural note are the bowed breakfront with conical roof and the finely tooled stone doorcase, with its decorative patera and fluted columns which contribute to the artistic significance of the structure. Enclosing the building is a fine cut limestone plinth with evidence of the positioning of iron railings. Though now in use as a hotel, this building is a prime example of a grand Irish townhouse and was once the home of the renowned Irish writer Anthony Trollope.
