Irish Landmarks – Inchiquin House – July 2015 – Issue 241


Inchiquin House

Inchiquin House is an elegant Georgian period home in County Clare, romantically tucked away in the west of Ireland.

The house itself is thought to have been built around 1800 (some say even earlier), and is marked as ‘Inchiquin Cottage’ in the first edition of the Ordnance Survey map of around 1840. The back part of the house, including the present kitchen and back bedrooms is a later addition, the date of which is unknown.

When built, the house was purposely located in a slight hollow to protect it from the prevailing westerly wind while, at the same time, providing an attractive view of Clifden Hill.
