BER Details

BER: Exempt


Lota Beg House is located on and accessed from the Lower Glanmire Road on the outskirts of Cork City. It is approached by a sweeping drive that winds through the deciduous woodland that surrounds the property. It's elevated site offers views over the city and the river Lee. Lota Beg House comprises a detached, two storey over basement period residence built between 1780 and 1820. The house is of significance as one of a group of houses in Tivoli associated with the Lota demesnes. The house, gate lodge and entrance are all listed as being protected structures in the 2015 Cork City Development Plan.

The entrance to the property is a familiar sight to thousands of people but very few have ever passed beneath the iconic stone arch, decorated with a magnificent Irish Wolfhound. The elegant house, designed by Abraham Hargrave, is hidden from view but one of its most notable features is the large bow on the north facing entrance porch, behind which lies the house's finest internal space, an immense circular domed entrance hallway, around which snakes a cantilevered timber staircase up to the first floor gallery.
