Woodlawn House

Woodlawn House

Woodlawn House, about 12 miles North-West of Ballinasloe, is the former seat of the Trench family, see Baron Ashtown. This large Italianate building was built in the late 18th Century by Frederic Trench, 1st Baron Ashtown and extended and remodelled in the mid-19th Century, following the marriage of Frederic Mason Trench, 2nd Baron Ashtown to his second wife, Elizabeth Oliver Gascoigne of Castle Oliver, Limerick. The building fell into ruin in the 1970s but has recently changed hands and will hopefully be restored.
