Killineer House

Killineer is a classical Regency house of white stucco, built just north of Drogheda in County Louth, by a local businessman, George Harpur, who had made a fortune in the salt trade. Harpur surrounded the house, which was completed in 1836, with seventeen acres of gardens which still survive today. The principal facade is of six bays, with a central single storey Doric porch and formal three-bay fronts to either side. The interior has an interesting layout, with a hexagonal entrance hall, while an imperial staircase leads from the inner hall to the top-lit landing above.
