Geashill Architectural Conservation Area

Geashill is an attractive, well planned  Heritage village built around a picturesque stone walled and tree-lined Green. It has a unique character which stems from historical elements such as the ruined medieval castle, the Old School and, the attractive setting of the village nestled among veteran trees on the esker, around the castle and in the Green.

 

In 2012, Offaly County Council published the book entitled Geashill - The Evolution of its Architecture, written and beautifully illustrated by County Architect Rachel Mc Kenna.

With the book as a valuable reference Geashill was granted Architectural Conservation Area status in 2014, the first in Offaly to achieve this status. Geashill's designation as a ACA aims to protect the special character of the area through the careful control and positive management of change within the built environment. Our community are proud of our village and its ACA status
