SITTING ON OVER an acre in Castleknock, Diswellstown House was once part of the Luttrellstown Castle estate.

These days, it has its own self-contained site of 1.2 acres. This home itself spans 8,396 sq ft, and that’s before you even consider the separate utility rooms, wine cellar and outhouses.

This recently restored six-bedroom home, built in the 17th century, is now on the market for €1,250,000.

Within, there are five vast reception rooms, including lounges, a dining room and a large kitchen, each one flooded with natural light. Period details in the form of centre roses and cornicing add to the elegance. Dark floorboards provide unity between the ground floor rooms.

Six bedrooms, three with en suite bathrooms reside on the upper floors of the house. 


The dining room is a host’s dream and can easily seat up to ten guests. Perfectly proportioned, a central light fitting and an open fire both act as focal points to encourage sociability and conversation.

A huge wine cellar hammers home the point that this is a house made for entertaining – and it’s just waiting to be filled with your reds and whites.


Each room has great views of the surrounding gardens and forestry and there’s plenty of parking, too.

It may not look like your typical suburban residence, but Diswellstown House is located opposite Castleknock Golf Club, and is just under 2 km from Castleknock village.

Sunday strolls in Phoenix Park will be easy, and Dublin city is easily accessed by bus or commuter rail.
