Dining in Belmore House
Belmore House was commissioned as a hunting lodge in a plain Georgian style by the Earl of Belmore c. 1780, built and designed by the Irish architect Sir Richard Morrison c. 1780. An extension of the house was planned as a square villa at the east end, with the rest of the house to become a service wing but it was never built.
The Earl of Belmore’s main residence was the magnificent Castle Coole, in Co. Fermanagh.
