From Ireland With Love | Moore Hall Photo Essay

Moore Hall is situated to the south of the village of Carnacon in Co. Mayo, lying on Muckloon Hill over looking Lough Carra.  It was once the home of George Moore and his family. The Moores were a family of sportsmen, patriots, statesmen, writers, and artists. The house was built in 1795 but destroyed by a fire in 1923. Today the house, estate, lake, and farm are owned by the forestry company, Coillte. The house itself is still in ruin so the public aren’t allowed to go inside the house. However, Moore Hall has many visitors each year who come to admire what’s left of this big house and the locals enjoy the walking trails around the grounds.

    1. You can walk right up to the house and walk around the perimeter but it’s more for safety as it is a ruin and to protect what’s left of the building that people aren’t allowed inside.

    1. It is! I know, that was unexpected. It was just lying there on the ground and I thought it would be an interesting object to take a picture of 😊
