80 Whitebeam Road
A castellated dwelling built c. 1789 as a suburban retreat for Henry Jackson, ironfounder, a prominent member of the United Irishmen. It has been granted a determination by the Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht that the house and its attendant grounds are intrinsically of significant architectural and historical interest.

The house was converted into flats in the 20C and has been the subject of an ongoing programme of restoration by the present owners, to its original use as a family home. The current owner conducts a mediation practice there and his son edits the online and print editions of ‘Cassandra Voices’ magazine from the house.
On an occasional basis, a room or rooms can be made available for community meetings, dispute mediation, workshops or musical or poetry recitals. A contribution towards expenses is normally asked.
