Explore Emo Court House
Emo Court is magnificent example of the neo-classical style, designed by architect James Gandon in 1790 for John Dawson, the first Earl of Portarlington. During the middle of this century, it was owned by the Jesuits and it was then acquired and extensively restored by Mr Cholmeley Harrison in the 1960s. The house and gardens were taken into state ownership in 1994. We recommend you enjoy a guided tour of the house which is open from March to late September before relaxing in its charming tearoom where you can enjoy warm drinks and treats,
