The front of the house has the Georgian rooms and portico which were added when the prince regent, later to become George IV, paid a visit in 1816. It was designed by Francis Johnson the architect for GPO on O’Connell Street and many other landmark buildings in Dublin. The front Georgian section hides a much older and modest farmhouse behind. It is estimated there has been a house on the site since the 15th century.

I went to Annesbrook to dine, and watch a production of The Picture of Dorian Gray. I had a wonderful evening. The food was simple and tasty, and the production stylish and classy. The three high quality performers used the dining hall as their stage, and skillfully weaved their way in and out of of the tables without ever missing a beat. It was a wonderful way to see a play.
Annesbrook was the setting for my 40th birthday party. My party commenced with a dinner party on the Friday night, the next day friends and family descended for an afternoon of drinks on the lawn, followed by an evening of food, drink and dancing. If you are looking for something boutique and individual that stands out from the rest then have your next event in Annesbrook.
