Originally the residence of the Church of Ireland archbishops, until they moved to Waterford. Designed by Edward Lovett Pearce for Archbishop Theophilus Bolton, this Palladian-style building is finished in brick with limestone dressings. There is a strong emphasis on symmetry within the design, the triple openings to the central bays are mirrored by the windows of the end bays while the rear fa├žade mirrors the front. The building retains many interesting features such as the timber sash windows and well-crafted stonework seen in the ornate window surrounds, cornices and consoles. Now in use as a hotel.
