Organised by The Centre for the Study of Historic Irish Houses and Estates, Maynooth University and The Office of Public Works in association with The Attingham Trust, The Historic Houses Association, and The Paul Mellon Centre.
The focus of this conference will be on the survival and revival of historic houses in Ireland, the UK, and Europe in the course of the last fifty years. The Country House Revived? is aimed at a wide audience of owners, scholars, students, heritage professionals, policy makers, and the many people with a general interest in the built heritage. Papers will examine a variety of topics and perspectives from across Europe, comparing issues and experiences that have affinities as well as contrasts. The conference will also explore ways in which this sector of the built heritage can foster future collaborative activity.
Accompanying the conference will be a photographic exhibition illustrating a variety of houses from across Ireland, the UK, and Europe, and chronicling their recent past.
