This property was formerly part of the Johnstown Castle estate.
It is listed in the publication by David Rowe & Eithne Scallan”Houses of Wexford”, the following is an extract from this publication.
This is an unusual, fairly substantial, eighteenth-century house on two levels, being of 2 storey construction in the front
south-facing section, and 3 storey (including extension) opening onto a fine yard. The yard buildings are of different stone
with some brick and were apparently constructed at different stages. Though altered, extended and modified over the
year, so it is interesting to describe in a number of buys, the house retains the character of a house over two hundred years
old, and has unusual features such as a rounded brick oven in the side of the kitchen fire opening, and a hidden passage
way to permit the servants to pass unobtrusively from the kitchen to the dinning room.
