Steamers and Merchants
Sligo Heritage and History Club
Yeats Society Building, Hyde Bridge, Sligo Town, Co. Sligo
25 August, 6pm - 7pm
Informative hourly tours of the historic Georgian-style country house, exploring its architecture and history, and its connections to the Beresford and Leslie families.
Dating to 1840, and carefully conserved over the past fifteen years, Corravahan retains all its original period features. This "architectural gem" remains an extraordinarily intact example of Italianate Classical architecture. Corravahan stands as a fitting tribute to the works of William Farrell, some-time architect to the Ecclesiastical Commissioners. A tour of the house will be followed by access to the surrounding gardens. Tours on the hour; last admission one hour before closing.
