Irish Big Houses: Appletree Pocket Guide
The tradition of the ‘Big House’ in Ireland has had a long and fascinating history and remains a glittering testimony to the richness of Irish culture and architecture.
In this practical guide, the author describes over 20 country houses that are open to the public on a regular basis.
From the Palladian glories of Castletown and Russborough to the Gothic style of Castle Ward and Lismore - whose sumptuous interiors and splendid contents are as much a part of their fabric as the buildings themselves - the reader is given a lavish tour.
Full-colour photographs make this an indispensable guide.
