Secluded in woodland at the foot of the lofty Nephin is Enniscoe House. At first glance a typical late Georgian country house, Enniscoe House was rebuilt at the turn of the nineteenth century enveloping an earlier farmhouse, which is still easily identifiable today. Although externally plain, the house boasts a graceful elliptical staircase ascending to a top-lit oval landing. The principal reception rooms overlooking Lough Conn feature faded silk wallpaper and decorative plasterwork cornices. Also available for the enjoyment of the visitor are a farmyard adapted as the North Mayo Heritage Centre; an ornamental walled garden restored (1996-9) under the Great Gardens of Ireland Restoration Programme; pleasure grounds containing a Georgian Gothic “mausoleum”; and lakeshore and woodland walks.
