This tour is operated on a first come basis. On arrival look out for Open House Volunteers who will be managing a queueing system.

Ireland’s finest example of neoclassic architecture, a showcase of design, detail and deception where building began in 1759 and work was only finishing on the outside 15 years later. Designed to look like a one story, one roomed Greek Temple, however what the story tells on the outside is very different form what lies within. Built for James Caulfield, Lord Charlemont, the 1st Earl of Charlemont and 4th Viscount of Charlemont who made his 9 year long Grand Tour of Europe between 1745 and 1754 and wanted to replicate here in Ireland what he had seen abroad.


Accessibility Information

The building is a 18th century building accessed by a series of steps and staircases, sometimes narrow and therefore has limited accessibility. The entrance is through the basement and guests with mobility issues can access though the front door but that is also up some steps and the upper floor is also only accessed by the stairs.

Accessible Toilets available.
