Ballinvirick House is an early Georgian Irish Country House with formal Gardens. The house contains several original architectural features and stands on 16 acres of woodland and gardens.
Ballinvirick House is a fine example of an early Georgian Irish Country House. It is located in county Limerick, between the villages of Adare and Askeaton. It was originally constructed in the late 18th century by the Royce family as an estate consisting of 120 acres. The family departed in the early 19th century and the house became the property of the Hewson family from nearby castle Hewson and was re-modelled at this time. During the early twentieth century, the property became vacant and the lands were divided up among local farmers, leaving the 16 acres which remain to this day.
During the 1930s Ballinvirick House was bought by the Tellander family who restored the house and gardens and added a large bay window on the east elevation. The property was further renovated by the Fleming family in 2008, who are the current owners.
The house boasts many original and restored architectural features. The house is classically proportioned with a four bay facade symmetrical around a central entrance. Inside, the original ceiling moldings and cornices have been restored and the window surrounds and stone sills are original.
The property sits on five acres of landscaped gardens including a restored walled garden. There is also a woodland walk and a large duck pond.
