EDITORS COMMENTS
The Round House at Kilroot, County Antrim, Northern Ireland, is a rare and intriguing example of a thatched, circular dwelling that once served as Dean Swift's rectory in the late 17th century. This photograph, taken in the early 1900s (WAG 3857), offers a glimpse into the past, transporting us back in time to an era long gone. The Round House, located in the picturesque village of Kilroot, is believed to have been built around 1695, making it one of the oldest surviving circular houses in Northern Ireland. Dean Jonathan Swift, a renowned Anglo-Irish satirist, poet, and essayist, served as the Anglican Dean of St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin from 1664 to 1689. It is believed that Swift resided in this unusual thatched cottage during his tenure in Ireland. The circular design of the house, with its thick stone walls and thatched roof, was a common architectural feature in Ireland during the late medieval and early modern periods. The Round House at Kilroot stands as a testament to the rich history and architectural heritage of Northern Ireland. Its unique design and historical significance make it a must-see attraction for visitors to the region. This photograph, taken in the early 1900s, provides a valuable record of this remarkable building, allowing us to appreciate its beauty and historical importance. The Round House at Kilroot continues to captivate and inspire, reminding us of the fascinating stories and history that lie hidden within the landscapes of Northern Ireland.
