Muckross House was built for Henry Arthur Herbert and his wife, the watercolourist Mary Balfour Herbert. This was actually the fourth house that successive generations of the Herbert family had occupied at Muckross over a period of almost two hundred years. William Burn, the well-known Scottish architect, was the designer. Building commenced in 1839 and was completed in 1843.
It was the most beautiful place we found in Ireland. We wished we had found it earlier, it was just gorgeous, and a fabulous place to walk around and enjoy native Ireland.
