This 2 storey cottage comprises a detached 6 roomed structure with a central bow to the south elevation. It is part of the estate of Marlay House, now a public park, in the care of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council. It was originally a circa 1790 thatched Cottage Ornée for the use of the resident family. It was remodeled with a slate roof, increasing the rooms on the 1st floor, by the Tedcastle Family in circa 1870 to its current Arts and Crafts form. The building was unused for almost 50 years and renovation commenced in 2013 overseen by the Architects' Department of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council. The restoration of Laurelmere was funded by the monies raised from the Marlay Park concerts.

First-come basis: Just turn up and look out for Open House Dublin volunteers.
