‘Hidden Ireland’ by James Fennell & Josephine Ryan. Published by Blackstaff Press.

We are thrilled to be included in this new coffee table book on some of the most charming houses in Ireland.

James Fennell’s evocative photographs combine with Josephine Ryan’s lively, authoritative text to tell the story of Hidden Ireland.

The Hidden Ireland group is a collection of historic Irish country houses where visitors can stay. All privately owned, the houses and much more than accommodation – together they form a group of Ireland’s most beautiful houses, and they stretch the length and breath of the country.

This stunning hardback offers privileged access to these houses and their owners – from our stately home in landscaped parkland in Co. Monaghan, a family home since it was built in 1734, to a Georgian mansion in Co. Cork that has diversified into glamping and on-site gin distilling.

Featuring eclectic interiors, family portraits and prized collections of fine porcelain, as well as the stunning architecture and gardens that these houses are known for, James Fennell’s evocative photographs combine with Josephine Ryan’s lively, authoritative text to tell the story of Hidden Ireland – the history, the style and the personalities that are at the heart of these glorious houses.

The book was launched at The Little Museum of Dublin on 29th November. Over a hundred people turned up to cheer on the book whilst sipping on Bertha’s Revenge tipples and Mont Irish Mountain Beer. Massive thanks to the wonderful team at The Little Museum of Dublin for hosting the event.
