Avondale House

Fodor's Review

This house was the birthplace and lifelong home of Charles Stewart Parnell (1846–91), the "Uncrowned King of Ireland," the country's leading politician of the 19th century and a wildly popular campaigner for democracy and land reform. Parnell's house, built in 1779, has been flawlessly restored—except for the reception and dining rooms on the ground floor, which are filled with Parnell memorabilia. Look for some of his love letters to Kitty O'Shea and political cartoons portraying Parnell's efforts to secure home rule for Ireland.
