Larchfield Estate is set in 600 acres of countryside, just 20 minutes from Belfast City Centre and 1hr 30 from Dublin. It has extensive hertiage, from stone walled barns and cottages to cobbled courtyards and acres of gardens. The Estate is family run with a multi award winning events team onsite.

The Estate is bursting with heritage character and of course, the main Georgian mansion house itself (built by the Mussenden family - bankers behind the linen industry in the 1750’s).

The Estate walls, encompassing some 275 acres, were built during the potato famine, the pillared entrance gates date from 1827. In 1845 the house was redesigned by Charles Lanyon (of Belfast University fame) and the red brick railway building was also constructed – despite not having a railway!

In 1868 the Ogilvy - Grahams took over ownership and the gate lodges were added. In 1873 a Victorian wing was added purportedly to house an orphaned nephew, nanny and donkey from India.

In 1968 Leslie Mackie brought Larchfield at auction. Gavin and Sarah moved and opened up for corporate events, weddings and filming. Over the years they have restored the original cottages and yards.


Larchfield is an event venue.
