Ireland’s finest example of neoclassical architecture, a showcase of design, detail and deception where building began in 1759. Designed by Sir William Chambers to look like a one storey, one roomed temple, however the story told on the outside is very different from what lies within. Built for James Caulfield, Lord Charlemont, the 1st Earl of Charlemont and 4th Viscount of Charlemont who made his 9 year Grand Tour of Europe between 1745 and 1754 and, upon his return, 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.
