ABOUT GROOMS

About the house

The Ranch, previously known as ‘Groom’s Cottage’, was commissioned in 1882 by Henry Moore, 3rd Marquess and 8th Earl of Drogheda, for the head groom of his estate. 


The ornate Victorian home was designed by renowned architect William Isaac Chambers and has since been named a protected structure, with careful restoration undertaken in 2004. 


It is located in the heart of Monasterevin town, which is colloquially known as ‘the Venice of Ireland’ thanks to its waterways. In 2019, Sean and Audrey happened to drive by the house and spotted a ‘for sale’ sign. Having both secretly admired the house for many years, they immediately went about doing everything possible to make it their forever home.
