Welcome to Parkanaur Manor House
Parkanaur is a large, rambling romantic Tudor Revival house which has evolved through the years. Originally the land was held by the O’Donnellys until granted by James I to Sir Toby Caulfield in the early 1600s. The land remained in the ownership of the Caulfields until sold by James Caulfield (1st Earl Charlemont) in 1771 to Ynyr Burges (East Ham, Essex), who had made a fortune in the East India Company as the 'Secretary & Paymaster of Seamens Wages'. Ynyr Burges appears only to have visited the estate occasionally. Following his death in 1793 a small two storey cottage called 'Edenfield' was built in 1802-1804 as an occasional residence. This may have been built by Ynyr's daughter Margaret or his nephew John Henry (Woodpark, Armagh).

We can accommodate up to 90 people in the magnificent Long Gallery (up to 120 people extending into the piano room) and approximately 75 in the stunning Drawing Room.
Thanks so much for organising such a fantastic night for our work colleague Margaret on her 60th birthday tonight. You really impressed us all - what a wonderful night starting from the roaring hot fire at the entrance right through to delicious food, beautiful flowers, and the countless candles making Parkanaur Manor having a high impression on every one of us. Thank you for your attention to detail. Your effort is a credit.
