Irish Historic Homes

About

In 2019, prompted by an article in the Irish Times in April,  https://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-style/homes-and-property/ireland-s-great-houses-the-homes-to-visit-in-2019-1.3857422,

in which the author writes:

“May traditionally kicks off the house-visiting season with many of Ireland’s great houses opening their doors from May 1st. More than 170 houses, gardens and buildings of interest welcome visitors for 60 days a year under the section 482 scheme that allows owners off set renovation and maintenance costs against income tax.”

Russborough House

I decided to try to visit as many Open Houses as possible in Ireland in 2019, and to blog about it. I continued in 2020. When Covid-19 restrictions permit, I will continue this year. I will try to set myself the ambitious goal of blogging about one place every two weeks. I will be reblogging my original entries from last year’s website, after I complete further research and editing.

According to Revenue website:

“Section 482 of the Taxes Consolidation Act, 1997, as amended, provides tax relief to the owner/occupier of an approved building (including surrounding garden), or an approved garden existing independently, in respect of expenditure incurred on its repair, maintenance or restoration.”

Here is the complete list of properties and their opening dates in 2022:
