Registration Begins for The Lutyens Trip Summer 2023
A Gateway into Ireland: Dublin, Lambay, and Lutyens
You’re invited! Our explorations of Lutyens’s architecture and gardens will soon be taking us to Ireland! This time we’ll spend a couple of days exploring the area around Dublin before embarking by boat to explore Lutyens’s work on Lambay, the island home of the Baring family, valued Lutyens’s clients.
For a sneak peek at what awaits you at Lambay, watch our LTA webinar “Lutyens at Lambay: Architecture and Arcadia” with Millie Baring and architects David Averill, and Stuart Martin.

Lutyens’s work in the area around Dublin includes Heywood Gardens, Howth Castle, and the Irish National War Memorial Gardens. He also developed plans for a proposed art gallery of River Liffey for Sir Hugh Lane that was never built. We’ll also visit several other important Irish architectural treasures.
Lutyens did extensive work on Lambay including not only the castle, but also The White House for the families of the daughters of Cecil and Maude Barings, a beautiful memorial to Mrs. Baring , renovation of the 19th century chapel, and the design of the Real Tennis Court on the sea front.

Lambay Island’s unique ecosystem plays home to a variety of wildlife ranging from a herd of fallow deer, a colony of Atlantic grey seals, to, more unusually, a troop of wild red neck wallabies. Nesting birds on the island, which is a National Bird Sanctuary, include Fulmars, Guillemots, Herring Gulls, Kittiwakes, Manx Shearwaters, and Puffins.
Lambay is also home to Lambay Irish Whiskey. Maturing on the island are the casks that bring flavor to Lambay Whiskey, produced in a partnership between the Baring family and the Camus family, known for their expertise with Cognac. “Their whiskey would be one of dynasty and devilment, of rarity and refinement, unique tasting and masterfully crafted.”
