Essentially a fortified three storey town house belonging to a wealthy merchant family in the centre of Carlingford. While the right to mint coinage was granted to Carlingford in 1467 it is unlikely that it was actually used as a mint. The most interesting feature is the five highly decorated limestone windows.
