Set within its own grounds. Pitched modern tiled roof with rendered chimneystacks. Roughly dressed random coursed limestone walls with tooled stone plinth, quoins, cornice and opening surrounds. Tie-bars to rear walls with stone and red brick batter base. Segmental-headed openings with tooled stone surrounds and replacement windows and door. Door to basement in south-east elevation. Ruins of former Geashill Castle to site. Site bounded by random course rubble stone wall with modern entrance gate. The breathtaking Geashill Castle dates back to the 1870s, and is the former home of the 11th Earl of Kildare, and later Baron and Baroness Digby. Geashill is a village in County Offaly , Ireland.
