In 2005 Augherea House underwent extensive refurbishment while maintaining much of its original existing features, furniture and decor. The symmetry, simplicity and order to the facade of this house and the emphasis on the entrance are both typical of the classical influence on large houses in rural Ireland. The classical order to the doorway is an overt classical reference. The large fanlight and the cut limestone details are evidence of the craftsmanship and care in design and execution of the construction. Set in mature grounds the original curtilage still exists, it is enhanced and contextualised by the outbuildings and the walled orchard to the rear.
In 2007 the coach house was also refurbished and turned into modern contemporary living accommodation. This building has many architectural features such as elliptical arched polychromy voussoirs on carriage arches and the red brick circular windows add interest to the facade of this functional building. In the nineteenth century this would have displayed the wealth and taste of the patron. The building has a patina of age and forms a pleasing and interesting architectural space. The walled garden is remarkably complete, both around its unbroken perimeter and in its height.
Our Guest House Offers a wonderful space in which to relax and experience what life must have been like in Georgian Ireland.
