DATING BACK TO the early 19th century, Drominagh Lodge is rich in history.

Located less than a five-minute drive from the shores of Lough Derg in Co Tipperary, the five-bed property is on the market for €779,000 through Sherry FitzGerald.

Originally built for the prestigious Biggs family, the house was then passed on to the Fogarty family, good friends of Michael Collins and Arthur Griffith.

Drominagh Lodge has been owned by the same family since the 1880s, and boasts nine acres of beautiful grounds. These include picturesque woodlands, patio areas, a working water wheel and a pond, as well as a farmyard with three barns. There is a great variety of trees throughout, including a weeping ash and a monkey puzzle tree.

The house itself is approached via a flight of stone steps, meaning you enter the property on the upper floor. While in good condition, the interior could benefit from a few upgrades and renovations to really make it shine.
