Finvarra House, Co. Clare Ireland

Finavarra House is in a glorious position overlooking water and mountains in the famous Burren region of Co. Clare. It was built sometime around 1825 and is now in a ruinous and delapidated state. The Clare County Council record of protected structures describes Finavarra House as a ruined detached 3-bay, 2-storey house built c.1825.
The section of wall between the front door and the window above is gone and it looks like it may have been removed on purpose so the stone could be used below as a barrier to prevent cattle walking into the house and falling into the basement (where there is evidence of fire damage). There are also extensive outbuildings with the house that include a beautiful gate lodge.
