Glenageary Hall

Glenageary Hall is another house situated in the Dún Laoghaire area. It was originally built in the period around 1830, a period of great construction speculation in the area with the development of the Asylum harbour. It was demolished in 1978.

Glenageary Hall featured extensive classical style ornamentation. This is particularily evident in the plaster panels and plaques, whose subjects included mythological studies of for example goddesses on chariots, muses, and cherubs. It also featured Ionic style columns in the drawing-room.
