The Argory

The Argory is a fine Neoclassical 'Irish gentry' home dating back to 1824 and set in 350 acres by the River Blackwater. The splendid grounds include very pleasant gardens, but the house is the real attraction.
Built of Caledon stone, its entrance hall features a cantilevered staircase, and the rooms contain Victorian and Edwardian furniture among many other period items, including a fabulous cabinet barrel organ.
The house is still lit an original 1906 acetylene gas plant in the stable yard, and during the summer it stages musical events and organized garden walks.
Tours provide entertaining anecdotes about the house's former owners, the McGeough-Bonds. Facilities include a tea-room serving cakes freshly baked on the premises.
