Our History

Magherabuoy House was built by a Liverpudlian doctor following the design of Sir Charles Lanyon. Lanyon was the leading Irish architect of his time. He also designed Queen’s University, Crumlin Road Gaol, Portrush Town Hall. He influenced the design of many churches and notable public buildings here.

During the years 1934-47, Magherabuoy House was the home of Sir Richard Dawson Bates. Bates was Minister for Home Affairs in the old Northern Ireland government at Stormont. He was a close ally of the Prime Minister and a controversial figure in his own right. He often used Magherabuoy House to entertain foreign dignitaries.
