The iconic Doll's house at the gates of Rathaspeck Manor was officially opened by soccer legend Paul McGrath last week.

The Doll's House, a south Wexford landmark, was re-roofed and re-painted in 2014 with grant aid from the Irish Heritage Council, but has remained unoccupied since.

Owners Mick and Betty Cuddihy, who also own the 5 star Rathaspeck Manor B&B, decided to open the Doll's House as a self-catering home, but recognised that the interior would have to reflect the unique exterior in equal measures intrigue and functionality.

They commissioned the assistance of Ann-Marie Carty from Arcadia Architects to assist.

The interior is zoned into small rooms with singular personality, and filled with objects from treasure troves, second hand stores, as well as a collection of forgotten family heirlooms from the main house attic.

The Doll's House is open for online bookings though the Rathaspeck Website or through AirBnB.
