Irish Landmark is a non-profit organisation that finds interesting and unusual properties that are in need of conservation, and gives them new life.
Since 1992, the Irish Landmark Trust has been turning historic buildings into truly special self-catering holiday accommodation. Their properties range from lighthouses and schoolhouses, to castles and gate lodges.
As an educational charity, the organisaation's primary aim is to conserve and sustain iconic buildings. That’s why Irish Landmark properties are living buildings, not museum settings. Irish Landmark always respects the history and architectural integrity of the structures we conserve, but we also ensure they have all the contemporary comforts you want in a holiday home.
Funding from Heritage Council in 2016 has facilitated the Irish Landmark Trust to re-thatch a roof of a small traditional cottage in Mitchelstown, Co.Cork, carry out enabling and improving works at the significant Saunderscourt Triumphal Arch Lodges in Wexford, and put in place a new Standards Officer role in the organisatio.
