Beaulieu House, Gardens and Motor Museum. Beaulieu Demesne was formed in 1169 by the Blessed Oliver branch of the Plunkett family. Following the 1641/42 siege of Drogheda, ownership changed to Sir Henry Tichbourne, Marshal of all Ireland and defender of Drogheda during the siege. Tichbourne his son and grandson constructed the present house. The current owner is tenth descendant of Sir Henry Tichbourne. The Dutch style is unique to Ireland and thought to be one of the very first unfortified houses constructed in Ireland. For a house of this age to survive in a virtually unchanged state is unique and therefore represents a true national treasure of Irish heritage.
