Are you looking for something to immerse yourself in, while on your next visit to the Irish Midlands? If so, look no further than the Victorian Escapade in Mullingar, Co Westmeath. The business is located in the famous Clonard House, which has been on the site since 1801! The house has had quite a journey since it was built. Originally, it was the George Rochforts, the earl of Belvedere. Then bought by the Meath Catholic Diocese in 1952, and from there, it was bought by Ted O’Leary, Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary’s father and the family lived here for many years!
Nowadays, it is owned by Victorian Escapade, which provides unique birthday and special events for visitors. Upon arrival, visitors are dressed as servants, and are told to do some chores around the house! Then visitors are dressed as Lords and Ladies, giving them a unique experience of both ends of the Victorian Spectrum. From there, visitors are brought for some games and dance upstairs, before ending the event in the dining room for Afternoon Tea. So, what are you waiting for? Make the most of your day out in the Midlands, and explore the Victorian Escapade in Mullingar!
