Ballymurrin Quaker Farmstead

Address
Kilbride, Wicklow Town
Phone 1

Set in a historic landscape of undulating contours, moods and hues, Ballymurrin Quaker Farmstead opens its doors to welcome visitors.

Uncover the stories of this farmstead; those who lived, died, were imprisoned & emigrated.  Visit the house, its meeting room, the forge.  Learn of the difficulties experienced here in Wicklow by Quakers, whose daring, enlightened new beliefs recognised neither priest nor tithes.

The house has been lived in for almost 350 years; much modified, yet keeping its essential form and plain architecture.

The farmstead and burial ground offer a fascinating legacy, invoking the life and struggles of new settlers in Ireland during a calamitous period for religious communities, both Catholic and Protestant. This is a farmstead of simple, rural charm, still lived in today.

Expect a historic destination that was settled by people of Quaker conviction, with agricultural lives, whose house grew with the family over many years, responding to needs, and built with local materials.
