Old Drogheda Society
The Old Drogheda Society will be running an evening outing to Barmeath Castle, on Thursday June 26th.
Barmeath Castle is a magnificent castle set on 300 acres of parkland with 10 acres of gardens, including a lake with island.
The Castle was built in the 15th century, and has been the home of the Bellew family for over 400 years. The original castle was a tower house which is incorporated in the present structure. In the late 17th century the castle was renovated with Georgian interiors. Thomas Wright created the beautiful gardens, including the lake, island, rock bridge and the Shell House. In the 1830s, Patrick Bellew, enlarged the house, with the extensions including an entrance tower with portcullis.
