Castle Coole is one of Ireland's finest Neo-classical houses, allowing visitors to glimpse what life was like in the home of the Earls of Belmore. The house was designed by James Wyatt, with a facade of Portland stone and beautifully proportioned interiors.

Victorian-Style Texture Popular from about 1860 to 1900, Victorian designs took inspiration from newly available mass-produced trim work to create ornate yet affordable homes for the middle class. In contrast to the simple, symmetrical, classically based styles that preceded it, Victorian houses featured steeply pitched roofs, asymmetrical floor plans, and multitextured and multicolor exterior walls.
