National Trust House & Gardens
The Argory is owned by the National trust in Northern Ireland. It is a superb example of an Irish gentry house and is surrounded by a vast 320 acre wooded riverside estate.
The house was built in the 1820s and was the former home of the Bond family. The family had very Edwardian tastes and interests and you can still see these reflected in the interior design of the house, which has remained unchanged since 1900. It has been referred to, by some people, as a neo-classical masterpiece.
The grounds of the estate are also picturesque and stunning. You can enjoy scenic walks and delight in the breath-taking sweeping views of the woodland and river. There is an adventure playground for the children as well as an environmental sculpture trail to keep them entertained. If you are feeling a bit peckish, you could try a bun and some tea from Lady Ada’s award winning tea-room.
