Loughton is an imposing country house in dramatically undulating countryside, surrounded by gardens and well-wooded hills near the village of Moneygall. The facade looks out over the park to the Devil’s Bit Mountains while the rear has extensive views over the borders of County Offaly and County Tipperary. The original house was built in 1777 by Thomas Ryder Pepper on the site of a seventeenth century dwelling and Ballinlough Castle, the late tower house of the previous owners, the O'Carroll family, remains in good condition. At a glance Loughton appears to date from the late Regency period but closer examination reveals a more complicated history.
