Bellinter House, Navan, Co.Meath

Another famous Palladian style house that was brought back to its former glory, Bellinter House is a large classic country house of Georgian heritage recently renovated by Powderly Construction and opened as a luxury spa hotel. Built with six bays over three floors, including a basement made of course rubble with fine limestone dressings. The house was in a very poor condition so a major restoration project had to be undertaken. This involved completely rebuilding the “Ruin”, one of the main wings of the house, and turning it into an award winning spa and wellness centre for the now famous hotel.

We kept as much of the original walls as we could and reconstructed the wing from scratch. We reused all the stone from the original building using traditional materials i.e. hydraulic lime to rebuild the stone.

All plasterwork throughout the project was also done by using traditional materials and methods as only our highly skilled tradesmen could achieve.

We used traditional sash windows and reclaimed limestone cills to achieve the original old look. The roof structure was rebuilt from solid oak A-framed beams with original wrought iron straps.

Swimming pools, both inside and outside, were installed.

Extensive repairs to all ironmongery had to be undertaken using traditional materials and methods.

Bellinter house was built in 1750 by Richard Cassels as a country house, on an estate of around 600 acres, for wealthy Dublin brewer John Preston. Cassels also designed Leinster House, Carton House, Trinity College, Powerscourt House, The Rotunda Hospital, Tyrone House, and Summerhill House.
