The Deeps is a 19th century period house in south County Wexford.
The house may be an ideal filming location for scenes that need an unorthodox big house or that need a period house that has sprawling grounds. Unlike larger period houses that dominate the landscape, the Deeps fits in naturally with its rural setting. The farmbuildings to the rear of the main house, and the extensive grounds further add to the rustic feel of the location.
The main house is compact, one storey tall, and has a colonnaded entrance way. The main house was built around 1840. It may have been originally built as a summer lodge, which may explain its small size and unusual exterior. Behind the main house there is a main courtyard surrounded by farm buildings.
As well as the garden immediately behind the main house, there is also a late 18th century walled garden on the property. In the gardens, there are ponds, walkways, sculptures, and a ruined wall that once belonged to a hothouse. The Deeps also has many acres of forest and farmland. The forest is on the banks of the River Slaney and the property has good views of the river.
