Guided tours of Barons Court are available by appointment. Situated in a sheltered valley in the foothills of the Sperrin mountains in Ireland’s County Tyrone, Barons Court is the home of the Duke of Abercorn and was built between 1779 and 1782, before being subsequently extensively remodelled by John Soane (1791), William and Richard Morrison (1819-1841), Sir Albert Richardson (1947-49) and David Hicks (1975-76). Barons Court sits at the heart of the Baronscourt Estate which has been home to the Duke of Abercorn’s family since 1612, and is among that handful of old family Estates in the British Isles which combine great historical and architectural interest with a landscape of outstanding natural beauty.

This private Estate is a vibrant working farm, rural business, and spreads over the valley floor at Baronscourt, and throughout its history each generation of the family has continued to ensure a programme of constant planting and landscaping of the park and gardens. 

Visitors to the Estate can enjoy the beautiful rolling countryside and spectacular walks, enhanced in spring and early summer by the magnificent displays of bluebells, rhododendrons and azaleas. The carefully tended woods frame wonderful vistas that together with the lakes create a truly enchanted location in which to relax away from the pressures of modern living.
