About the book
A land of legend and lore, Ireland is also home to some of the most breathtaking residences in the world, 10 of which are explored in this charming book. Take a once-in-a-lifetime tour through these historical homes and castles—all still owned and lived in by the original families—furnished with heirlooms and cherished hand-me-downs. From cabinets filled with monogrammed china to cabbage-rose slipcovered sofas nestled beneath tall Gothic windows, the lavish living rooms and bedrooms, print-lined hallways, and well-used mudrooms capture the distinctive personalities of their owners.

Praise for The Irish Country House:

"This book examines the houses and castles that have not only survived, but are also in the hands of their original families." - Design*Sponge
