“A fine Georgian building” – the original Dartrey stables
“A fine Georgian building” – the original Dartrey stables
This great Palladian-style building was the original stables of the Dartrey estate and is now privately owned. It was built in 1730, coinciding with the completion of the Palladian mansion at neighbouring Bellamont Forest by the famous young Irish architect Sir Edward Lovett Pearce (1699-1733) who introduced Palladianism to Ireland and later designed the Irish Parliament buildings. The design of these stables has many interesting features strongly indicating his hand and influence at work: the building is recognised as being of architectural importance. It was replaced by H6017 : The ‘new’ stables on the Dartrey estate built in the 1840s. Now suffering badly from the effects of time and neglect, this once fine Georgian building is in urgent need of restoration before it finally subsides into ruin and complete loss.
