This is a photo I took in 1998 at Roundwood House near Mountrath, County Laois, Ireland.   I have a lot more to say about Roundwood House and lots of photos I will post in the next couple of weeks, but I wanted to put this one up because it looks out onto the remodeled carriage house behind the main house and contrasts the shape of the window against the building outside.  The lovely thing about Georgian houses, besides the plaster work inside, is that they have tall shuttered windows of all shapes and variations.  Great for photos like this one.

Roundwood House is part of the Hidden Ireland group of B & B’s, and I have stayed there many times.  Hidden Ireland is a group of exclusive historic houses throughout Ireland where you can be assured of having a great room, a great breakfast, and sometimes even dinner, too!


  1. Lovely view!
