Our history


Orlagh House was originally built in 1790 by Dublin snuff merchant Lundy Foot, and was originally called “Footmount”. Only after its third owner came to possess the property was it renamed Orlagh House. In 1798, the United Irishmen attacked the house, but Alderman Foot and the local militia fought off their attack, saving Orlagh House. Many famous figures from Anglo-Irish history visited Orlagh House over its lengthy history, including the Great Emancipator, Daniel O’Connell, Eoin O’Neill, Padraig Pearse, and William Smith O’Brian.
