Martinstown House

Martinstown HouseOriginally part of the extensive estates of the Dukes of Leinster, Martinstown was completed by the Burrowes family between 1832-40 in the charming "Strawberry Hill" gothic style as a cottage orné. Many interesting people have stayed her. And today’s visitors enjoy old-fashioned hospitality but with modern day comforts. The house is beautifully decorated and has an informal elegance with a most welcoming atmosphere.

Outside there are wonderful trees, a well-maintained walled garden with a hard tennis court, an old icehouse, cattle, sheep and a donkey and proper free-range hens.
