Historic Houses & Castles

Meander is a two-storey, flat-roofed, detached house, dating from 1939. It was designed and to a large extent built by its owners the architect couple Alan and Mairin Hope. It is constructed of block-work, is sheeted externally in horizontal cedar boarding and lined internally with oak and mahogany plywood.

The house retains its original fenestration, external and internal finishes. The architects responded in a sensitive manner to the existing woodland setting which surrounded a series of natural ponds and developed the gardens. Meander has long been recognised as an example of Modernism in Ireland.

2017 Opening dates to be confirmed. It is advised to contact the property directly prior to making arrangements to visit.
