Emo Court, Emo
One of the most important country houses in Ireland has been in the care of the State since 1994 after its last owner Mr Cholmeley Dering Cholmeley-Harrison gifted it to the Irish nation. The design for Emo was commissioned by the first Earl of Portarlington in 1790 from James Gandon, the architect of the Custom House and the Four Courts. It is one of his few domestic buildings, although one might describe Emo as magnificent rather than homely. Further information: LinkExternal link
