A beautiful estate nestled in the picturesque surroundings of the County Down countryside.
Montalto Estate, Ballynahinch, Co Down, Northern Ireland, BT24 8PX
In 1660 the estate was first purchased by the Rawdon family from the McCartans. A two storey house was then built by the Earl of Moira in 1765. The plaster work on the ceiling of the Lady’s Sitting Room, attributed to Robert West of Dublin, from that period still survives to this day.
In 1798 the Battle of Ballynahinch took place on the outskirts of the estate.
