Gate Lodges at Hope Castle

We were recently commissioned to carry out conditional surveys of the gate lodge buildings at Hope Castle, Castleblayney as part of preparation for conservation works to these significant and historic buildings.

These two mid nineteenth Century buildings occupy an important and strategic location between the commercial streetscape of the town and the Castle grounds around Lough Muckno.  They have been unoccupied for a significant period of time and have fallen into disrepair.

It is intended that conservation and remodelling of the buildings will be carried out subject to the availability of funding in order to prevent further decline and to bring them back into use.
