Stylebawn House Delgany

Stylebawn House
Sheena Gogarty

Stylebawn House was originally two thatched houses which were built in the 16th century on twelve and a half acres of land and merged in 1773. It was once known as the Delgany Inn and later Glenowen. The roof was changed to slate in the early 1900’s. Sir Walter Raleigh, the man who brought the potato to Ireland, stayed in the house. The most recent occupants The Gaisford-St. Lawrence family maintained a magical garden of two acres plunging down to the Three Trouts Stream. For many Summers these gardens were open to the public.
