The skilfully carved limestone pillars and the entrance sets the tone for the 4 bedroomed unique residence with charm and character that lies within. Wrought iron gates bring you through the parkland style driveway and the 5.5 acres to this detached home which was built c.1780. It comprises a three-bay two-storey main block with attic and basement. There are outbuildings close to the main house with a large multiple-bay two-storey stables with four separate stalls and a second floor/hayloft. There are two lawned areas to the front of the property, a walled garden and two large paddocks.
This house, although having a late eighteenth-century core, is more typical of early nineteenth-century houses. The chimneystacks to the gable ends are a typical feature, as are the diminishing windows which emphasise the vertical thrust of the house. The simple façade is enlivened by the delicately ornate overlight. The limestone steps to the entrance are finely carved and are a reminder of the quality of craftsmanship of the masons. The additions and extensions are distinct in their architectural styles and add a patina of age to the site. The outbuilding reflects the architecture of the addition to form an overall coherent architectural scheme.
Suirvale House is located in a prime position on the Cashel road out of Cahir town circa 3 min drive (1.9 km) via R670 and is just two minutes to junction 10 of the M8 Cork to Dublin motorway.
