* "Interesting reading...we have come a long way in reimagining the country house." -- Irish Arts Review

* "This book provides a long and intensely interesting argument for the preservation not only of a house itself but of its written records, its muniments. For these are the history of the place, of the estate, of the village or town, of the townland, of its farms and holdings...celebrates above all the ability of such places to transform themselves, time after time." -- Irish Examine

* "From academics interested in accessing some of the latest research in the field of historic house, estate and demesne landscape studies, to those involved in the management and running of these houses as educational facilities and tourist attractions, to local and state authorities and the general public, this well illustrated, very readable book comes highly recommended." -- Irish Literary Supplement [Subject: History, Irish Studies]
