On Our Doorstep
The Argory is a handsome Irish gentry house, built in the 1820s. It sits on a hillside with wonderful views over its gardens and 320 acre wooded estate bordering the River Blackwater. The former home of the MacGeough Bond family, a tour of this Neo-classical masterpiece reveals it is unchanged since 1900. The eclectic interior still evokes the family’s tastes and interests. Outside, there are sweeping vistas and numerous trails to explore. The spring bulbs and snowdrop walks are beautiful.
