In the 1800s, the original house was remodelled, by the second Earl of Longford, as a huge Gothic revival castle. It is home to a large collection of furniture, portraits, and 19th Century gadgetry, such as a Victorian kitchen tools. The gardens and grounds feature two lakes, a fernery walk and grotto, and a Chinese garden. There is also a walled garden with flower borders and are many splendid trees, including some fine examples of 200 year old Irish yews.
