Strokestown Park House, the seat of the Pakenham Mahon family from the 1660s to 1979, is full of thousands of original artefacts spanning over three centuries. From antique furniture and furnishings to family archives and toys, the rich collections focuses on all aspects of family life in the country house, covering formal dining, children’s school rooms, servant life, aristocratic hobbies, and correspondence with the tenants on the estate.

The spectacular interiors of the house are like a time capsule and have survived relatively untouched to this day, from the grand formal rooms and private quarters to the galleried kitchen in the basement. Each generation of the family not only left their belongings behind, but also layers of stories for visitors to enjoy to this day.
