Discover a €4m Georgian fairytale in seaside Blackrock
Eagle House was originally two separate properties, merged together by a previous owner.

1 Daft Daft

DATING ALL THE way back to the nineteenth century, Eagle House was, surprisingly, originally two houses.

The two were brought together by a previous owner to sit on half an acre of magnificent Italian-style gardens, complete with gazebos, patios and a duck pond.

The original accommodation has been updated over the years; a conservatory has been added, as well as a kitchen/dining area overlooking the gardens.

The conservatory is one of the home’s six reception rooms, yet the country-style kitchen feels like the true heart of the property.

2 Daft Daft

As well as an impressive five bedrooms, Eagle House has a music room, plant room and wine cellar for all the grand piano and fern-growing space you could ever need.

These rooms are vast and luxurious, as is the main bathroom, a Roman-style room that, according to The Irish Times, cost €22,000 to design.

The estate is simply enormous, but it doesn’t feel imposing or stuffy despite the wealth of period features on display.

Out in the gardens, this feeling of relaxation and homeliness is evident, too. There’s an awful lot packed onto half an acre, from a gazebo to a spacious BBQ area.

5 Daft Daft

Eagle Lodge may seem like it’s part of another world, but in reality, it’s just a few minutes’ stroll from the dreamy seaside village of Glasthule.

You’ll find all the necessities here, including a DART station and some very good restaurants. Dublin city is 30 minutes away by train or car.
