Bermingham House, Tuam, Co. Galway

€1,250,000 - Asking Price|7 Bedrooms

A perfectly balanced Georgian mansion privately set within a serene and mature parkland setting of approx 211 acres and enjoying a remarkable hunting provenance, the echo of the hunting horn never being far away.

Bermingham House, situated just two miles from Tuam, is a classical Georgian country house, which has been sensitively modernised but has remained absolutely faithful to its Georgian heritage. The house was built in 1730 by John de Bermingham Earl of Louth and 15th Baron of Athenry. In the 19th century the estate passed to the Dennis family. Legend says that the house was won by a member of the Dennis family in a bet. John Dennis first master and huntsman founded the County Galway hunt in 1829. When John Dennis died the estate passed to the family of his sister whose descendant Oonagh Mary Hyland now presides over this superb estate.

The setting of Bermingham House is unusual as it appears to sit in a saucer, being located in flat terrain and partly enclosed by tree covered eskers. A fine pair of gate pillars and a tree lined drive lead to the house which Lady Mollie defiantly painted a colourful shade nearly as red as hunting pink! The entrance front of Bermingham House is three-bay two-storey with unusually widely spaced side-lights to the front door; the east elevation has five bays and the west four bays.
