Taken on my trip to Ireland. Russborough House

Russborough House was built in 1741 by Joseph Leeson, the son of a wealthy brewer in Dublin. The architect was Richard Castle, a great promoter of the Palladian style of architecture in 18th century Ireland. The house took approximately 10 years to build. Russborough is widely considered to be Richard Cassells ’s finest achievement, it was also his last as he died before Russborough was completed. It is generally acknowledged that the house was finished by Francis Bindon, a successful artist and architect from Ireland’s mid-Georgian era.
