Montalto Article

Deirdre McQuillan, a columnist with the Irish Times newspaper, has written a good article this morning about Montalto, County Down, one of Northern Ireland's finest country houses and estates.

I have written about Montalto and its former owners myself.

Montalto's owners, Gordon and June Wilson, talk about how they acquired the demesne and restored the mansion.

Montalto is administered by David Anderson MVO MBE, former Household Manager at Hillsborough Castle.

The Wilsons are now engaged with another project, renovating an old stable yard on the estate with the same level of attention to detail and standard of finish as the house.

With its own separate entrance, this will be available for weddings, exhibitions or corporate events and is due to open next March, coinciding with the Titanic anniversary.
