Monksgrange house is a large 18th century period house in west County Wexford, Ireland.
The house may be an ideal filming location for scenes set in a country house, and especially for scenes requiring a venerable house or a house with gardens and grounds. Monksgrange House has a classic inspired exterior, which gives the house an imposing but elegant personality. The house is given visual impact by the individual old trees that decorate the field in front of it.
The house is set on large grounds, which include fields, forests, and gardens. The gardens to the rear of the house have existed in their current form since the 1920s. They contain many tree and shurb specimens, including azaleas and rhododendrons. There are many stone paths, streams, and ponds to set scenes. The garden also has an interesting castle-style folly.
The main building was constructed around 1770. The driveway to the location is a long avenue, which may be a useful filming location by itself. The lane is paved, unmarked, and is shaded by trees for most of its route. Also on the property is a modern farm with several farm buildings. The location is in the shadow of the Blackstairs Mountains and may get good views of the mountains in certain spots.
Dimensions: Driveway: 750m by 4m. Sheltered by trees for 600m.
