Documenting our Heritage

Built in the Palladian style, the house reflected the growing Irish passion for beauty and sensitive artistry in domestic residences. It was fashioned for sea views and Galway Bay sunsets, the grandest in Europe.

We enter Tyrone

Its an impressive structure, original features still remain in the plaster

However it’s clear no attempt is being made preserve this structure - it is a ruin.

Tyrone is dramatically located atop its ocean promontory and dominates the landscape for miles around. Within the house, no expense was spared for high detailed design or for whimsy.

  The recess in front of us housed a life-size white marble statue of the second Lord St. George, arrayed in the regalia of a Roman emperor. From his niche, he was a constant reminder of family bloodlines and the classical taste of the age.

Grand Tyrone

This house was fashioned to be the grandest in Europe.

It’s hard to picture the scene..

This house was surrounded by groves of peaches, hot houses used from 1838 contained Hamburg & white grapes

Tyrone’s art, craftsmanship, and sophisticated design demonstrated an Irish mastery of high architectural development.
