Belvedere House, designed by Richard Cassells and built c.1740, is one of the finest historic small houses in Ireland and is set in a designed landscape within which are three follies. Belvedere House is a Protected Structure of National Significance.

Belvedere House gardens and Park have been in the ownership of Westmeath County Council since 1982 when they were purchased from the last private owner Rex Beaumont. Following an extensive programme of restoration, the house and grounds opened to the public in 2000.

Westmeath County Council, with support from The Heritage Council, have appointed a multidisciplinary team to prepare a Conservation Management Plan, that will take a holistic approach to the conservation needs of Belvedere House, the follies and the grounds.

This team is being led by Conservation Architect Fergal McNamara from 7L Architects. Fergal will give a presentation on Belvedere House Gardens and Park and what is involved in preparing the Conservation Management Plan for this special place. Audience input will be welcome.
