Appraisal

This is an imposing freestanding building on the main street of Kildorrery. Its height and fenestration are well balanced and in keeping with the rest of the street line. It retains its historic form and composition along with much of its fabric such as ridge tiles, render surrounds, quoins and shopfront. The render shopfront represents the continuity of a strong tradition of shopfront construction in Kildorrery.
