Aghaboe House was finished about 1730. It was the home to the famous Irish Antiquarian Edward Ledwich circa 1790. Ledwich was the author of 'Antiquities of Ireland' a two volume set with spectacular woodcuts published in 1795. A pristine copy may be inspected by prior arrangement.
The views of adjoining Aghaboe Abbey are enhanced at night with floodlights. The views of the nearby Slieve Bloom Mountains, winter home of Finn MacCool and the Fiana or Irish warrior class, are spectacular from the back patio and most of the bedrooms and common rooms.
The newly completed motorway system in Ireland makes the central location of Aghaboe House an ideal base for touring. Nearby golf and historic attractions are plentiful.
If you are looking for a real Irish 'Country Estate' experience this is it.
Large American pellet stoves keep the house warm and aired. The large oil fired AGA stove in the kitchen is an added experience.
There is a separate large sitting room and a separate large dining room as well as an eat-in kitchen.
Aghaboe House is both unique and unforgettable.
