South Mall was planned and constructed on the Lismore estate in 1832.

You will notice the Parochial House on your left. Famed author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is rumoured to have spent a short time living there on one of his sojourns in Ireland.

Further along the Mall, on your right, you will see a house called ‘Inchigeela’, a beautiful example of early-19th-century housing, constructed with an unusual rust-coloured stone. Its preserved Doric door – columned and decorated in the Greek style – should be noted.

At this point, there is a spectacular view of the Church of Ireland Cathedral, with the Knockmealdown Mountains in the background.
