FROM THE ICONIC doors of Dublin to a host of period dwellings large and small around the country, Georgian architecture has a unique place in the Irish landscape.

This week we’re looking at four Georgian homes around the country – from a six-bed in Sligo to an eye-catching property in Carlow.

Cottlestown, Co Sligo – €575,000

Located on five acres of beautiful gardens and parkland, Castletown Manor is a highly impressive six-bed country residence. Dating from the mid 17th century, the manor house and courtyard accommodation extends to a total of 6,994 sq ft. There are many attractive features throughout, including open fireplaces, the original staircase and wooden flooring.
