Castle Hume Hall
|Castle Hume Hall|
|For:|| Sir Gustavus Hume |
by Richard Cassells
Castle Hume Hall stood close to the north-west of Enniskillen in Fermanagh, close to the shores of Lower Lough Erne, from the early eighteenth century. It has now all but disappeared: the stable block still stands but the house has gone. The name is remembered in surrounding area and the local golf club.
The house was built for Sir Gustavus Hume by Richard Cassells (or Castle), an architect of obscure origin, possibly born in Dresden. Sir Gustavus brought Casslls to Ireland, where he is responsible for several notable Palladian houses.
