1807 – Castle Gar, Ahascragh, Co. Galway

Architect: Sir Richard Morrison

0003

“In his exteriors he imitated mediaeval castles and abbeys, or preferably Tudor mansions, and sometimes combined the two. His interiors were richly decorated with ornamental carvings, the walls were wainscoted in oak, tracery windows were filled with stained glass, and ceilings ornamented with carved beams and gilt pendants. The halls were large and in the baronial style; musician’s galleries were often added. One of the most noteworthy of Morrison’s creations was Castle Gar, possessed by the Mahon family.”
