Self-Catering Accommodation at Batty Langley Lodge
Batty Langley Lodge
An elegant one bedroom two storey building with seven stone pinnacles!
In a world gone mad, how reassuring it is to know that a place like this still exists. Top tip of your stay: take off your watch when you arrive and don’t put it back on until you leave – time means nothing here!
Quaint, charming – a great place to ‘chill out’ and relax. Will definitely be back again. Great weekend.
What a wonderful house in a wonderful setting!
An elegant two storey building with seven stone pinnacles, Batty Langley Lodge was designed to be viewed from the River Walk below as part of the planned landscape surrounding the world famous Palladian Castletown House. It is due to the generosity of OPW – both financially and by partnership with Irish Landmark – that this building is available for our guests.
It is situated on the old Dublin entrance to Castletown House, now a quiet country lane. It is far removed from the hustle and bustle of normal every day life. A perfect place to relax while still being able to get in to Dublin city within an hour.
Based on a design for a ‘Gothick Temple’ taken from Batty Langley’s book Gothic Architecture published in 1747, the façade of the lodge was added to the existing rectangular cottage in 1785. Thus the lodge became known as the ‘Batty Langley Lodge’.
