Springhill House

Springhill has a beguiling spirit that captures the heart of every visitor. Described as ‘one of the prettiest houses in Ulster’, its welcoming charm reveals a family home with portraits, furniture and decorative arts that bring to life the many generations of Lenox-Conynghams who lived here from 1680. The old laundry houses one of Springhill’s most popular attractions, the Costume Collection with some exceptionally fine 18th to 20th century pieces.

• Celebrated collection of costumes, from the 18th century to 1970s
• 'Living-History' tours awaken ten generations of family stories
• Home to Ireland's best-documented ghost
• Beautiful walled gardens and waymarked paths through the parkland
• Children’s adventure trail play park
• Caravan site
