ROUNDWOOD HOUSE

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! If I can’t stay in a castle when I visit Ireland someday then I sure would love to spend a few nights in a beautiful Irish country house. One place I might be willing to consider is Roundwood, an 18th century home located just over an hour outside of Dublin. The charming interiors and beautiful setting look like it would be a perfect place to call home for a relaxing few nights. Be warned: there are no flat screen TV’s to be found here. I’m not sure I can live without that creature comfort but I would be willing to give it a try and use it as a great excuse to also disconnect for a few days. 

This is such a lovely property…you’d never know that it was abandoned and boarded up during the 1960’s. Thankfully it has been restored and the current owners are willing to share it with us. To learn more about Roundwood House and its history be sure to check out their website.

The Blue Room. The artwork in this room are actually photographs of original paintings from the 1700’s. They look amazing against Farrow and Ball’s “Drawing Room Blue” paint.
