Moore Hall was built from 1792 to 1795 by George Moore, a very wealthy merchant who made his fortune through dealings in wine, brandy and iodine. The Moore family and their descendants are part of the major social, historical, cultural and political history of Ireland and George's son John Moore is recognised as Ireland's first president. The house was occupied up to 1910 and by 1923 it was torched during the Irish Civil War.

Today as you make your way through the forest to the house you can't fail to be impressed by a striking building that has stood for more than 200 years. They certainly don't make them like they used to. The forest around Moore Hall is open to the public.
