Explore life on the estates of the "Big Houses" through this online exhibition drawing on many of the National Library of Ireland's photographic collections.

Ireland's “Big Houses” were the large country homes of local landlords. The images reveal much about the architecture, gardens, families and staff of the landed estates, across the island of Ireland, before the political revolution in the early twentieth century changed their role in Irish society.
