  • history

    The Triumphal Arch Lodge is a Grade B Listed Building and is part of the Colebrooke Estate.  The estate has a long history dating back to the 1640s when a large portion of confiscated land at Brookeborough was given to the Brooke family as a reward for services during the 1641 rebellion.  The estate has remained in the Brooke family ever since and has been home to many notable military and public figures including Field Marshal Viscount Alan Brooke and Northern Ireland Prime Minister Basil Brooke, 1943 -1963.

    In 1786 the post Chaise Companion described Colebrooke as "a very fine and delightful seat" but Sir Henry Brooke had grand plans for this wooded demesne and from 1819 the eminent Dublin architect William Farrell was commissioned to redesign the main house, park and estate buildings including two gatelodges one with an ambitious entrance arch.

    The gatelodge and Triumphal Arch entrance were designed to complement the great house beyond and make an impressive approach to the estate, while at the same time showing the taste of the Brookes and acting as an introduction to the grandeur that was to come.
