"The lords and other landowners of Ireland, known, together with their relations, as the Ascendancy long after they had ceased to be in the ascendant, entered a twilight period just over a century ago when they lost most of their political power at the same time as their economic foundations were eroded by agricultural depression and agrarian disturbances. This is their story during the hundred years of their decline." [1870s to 1960s] --Preface

A guide to Irish country houses by Mark Bence-Jones( Book )

10 editions published between 1988 and 1996 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Mark Bence-Jones sets out to describe every Irish country house of which he knows, whether still standing or ruined or long-demolished. He covers the whole of Ireland, Northern Ireland as well as the Republic, and includes houses large and small and of every period and style, from medieval castles to houses built in the 1970s. He includes famous houses and houses that are unknown; he does not confine himself to houses of architectural or historical importance. Nearly 2, 000 Irish country houses are featured in this book, each having an alphabetical entry describing it. Almost all the entries give information on the history and ownership of the houses; many of them are enlivened with anecdotes and fascinating details, not only about the architecture and decoration of the houses, but also about their surroundings, their literary associations, their ghosts and their celebrities."--Jacket
