Woodbrook House is a large 18th century country house in west County Wexford, Ireland.
The Classically-inspired period house may be an ideal filming location for scenes that need an impressive but unpretentious country house. On the exterior, the building is of a simple square layout, but it has good embellishments like the classical chimneys, the over-sailing roof, and the temple style plasterwork around the front door.
The inside of the house continues the tasteful beauty of the exterior. Almost all the rooms and halls are bright and airy due to high ceilings and a large number of large windows. Features of particular interest inside the location are the ‘flying’ spiral staircase and the exceptionally spacious drawing room. The small but dramatic staircase should give scenes set in the foyer extra visual interest. The drawing room makes a comfortable space for guests and should have room to satisfy most filmmakers’ needs.
The grounds are sprawling and peaceful, they include forest and farmland, and they are enhanced by their proximity to the Blackstairs Mountains. On the property is a farmyard which features some 19th century buildings. A historic walled garden lays beyond the farm buildings.
The house was originally built in 1775, but apparently largely rebuilt after being damaged in the 1798 rebellion. The exterior is of local granite. The owners rent the location as bed and breakfast accommodation, host festivals on the site, and welcome English language students in the summer.
