Once the home of Lady Gregory, dramatist and folklorist and co-founder with Edward Martyn and W.B. Yeats of the Abbey Theatre, it was, in the early 20th Century, the centre of the Irish Literary Revival.

The park and walled garden, with its autograph tree, engraved with initials of many of the leading figures of the Irish Literary Revival, is open all year round to the public. In addition there are many local sporting and social activities on offer that one can partake in from golf either at Gort Golf Club or Galway Bay Golf Resort in Renville, sailing at Rinville Sailing Club or visit the Lady Gregory Hotel with its wonderful indoor pool and leisure centre, a great way to spend a rainy afternoon!
