ANNESTOWN HOUSE, Annestown, County Waterford, has been a seat of the Palliser family and their descendants since about 1830.
This is a rambling, three-storey house, at right-angles to the street in the village of Annestown.
It is actually two houses joined together. The main front faces the sea, though the gable end is on the street.
The rooms have low ceilings, though they are commodious.
The long drawing-room is divided by an arch with plain Victorian plasterwork; while a large library is approached along a passage.
Annestown House was owned at the beginning of the 19th century by Henry St George Cole; bought about 1830 by the Pallisers, from whom it was inherited by the Galloways.
It remained with the Galloway family until 2008.
COMERAGH HOUSE (above) was another seat of the Pallisers; as was Blervie, Morayshire.
