The Farmleigh House is a Georgian style manor house based in Dublin. Built in the late 18th century, it was owned by Adelaide Guinness, a great-granddaughter of Arthur Guinness, founder of the brewery of the same name. Magnificent, the manor is now open to the public!
The Farmleigh property is situated north-west of Phoenix Park in Dublin in 78 hectares of wooded parkland. In 1999, the house was purchased by the Irish State and renovated to accommodate the general public and high dignitaries.
The Manor House also includes a Clock Tower and a magnificent library, the Benjamin Iveagh Library, which was developed during the life of Benjamin Guinness (1937-1992), a great lover of rare books. Its collection is estimated at more than 5,000 volumes, most of which have been donated to the Marsh’s Library.
The manor house is magnificent, and a perfect example of the Georgian style dear to the city of Dublin. You will discover the main living rooms of the Guinness family, from the bedrooms to the living room, and you can walk around its beautifully maintained garden.
Visits are free of charge, and run from Monday to Sunday, provided that the Manor House does not host political events.
