Open day at historic Tullymurry house

Tullymurry House is a complex building dating back to the eighteenth century.

It is a listed elegant Georgian country house which was facing an uncertain future due to lack of regular use.

The Irish Landmark Trust was approached by the owners at the beginning of 2009 and a beneficial partnership with the owner was negotiated resulting in the house being conserved and given a new use as an Irish Landmark restored holiday home. Funding was generously provided by the family and the NIEA.

The Irish Landmark Trust Limited saves heritage buildings that are abandoned or at risk throughout the whole of Ireland. Irish Landmark undertakes their conservation, restoration and maintenance by converting the properties to domestic use suitable for short-term (e.g. holiday) lettings.

The properties are varied, from lighthouses, to Gatelodges, to Tower Houses, to School Houses, to restored stables, and because of their individuality, even eccentricity – are unsuitable as permanent residences.

But often in remote and delightful parts of the country, they are ideal retreats for those seeking a short stay in charming and sensitively restored buildings. Having launched the first properties in 1997, Irish landmark now has 25 fully restored properties in its portfolio.

Among the many attractive features of Tullymurry House are the wonderful gardens that surround it. There is an orchard and a beautiful rose garden. Here guests can relax and put the stresses and strains of everyday life out of their minds.

One of the unique features of this Irish Landmark is the addition of a wellness area. This is the first Irish Landmark to include mini-spa with a hot tub and sauna. This is sure to be a big attraction for potential guests.

Tullymurry House sleeps up to 8 people. There are two double bedrooms, a twin room, and two single rooms. It is an ideal holiday location for families, small groups, or couples. Its historic and traditional Irish country house style and atmosphere with modern facilities and garden offers a holiday that will long be remembered.

Speaking of the open day, Mary O’Brien, CEO of Irish Landmark said, “The Irish Landmark Trust has rescued and restored some of Ireland’s most important historic buildings, and endowed them with a sustainable future by letting them as self catering accommodation.

“Our many guests frequently return to enjoy the Irish Landmark experience. We look forward to showing you around, telling you about the properties history, about the people who lived here and about its conservation journey, but most of all giving you a gimps of how comfortable, tranquil and utterly unique this wonderful building on your doorstep is,” Mary added.

Located near Donaghmore, between Newry and Banbridge, it is approx. 1 hr 15 mins from both Dublin and Belfast. Post code for Sat Navs: BT34 1NG

The open day takes place on Wednesday 9th April from 9:30am – 3:00pm.
