    The four main rooms open to the public are the Oak Room, which is paneled in wood with carved panels depicting scenes from the scriptures, including Adam and Eve, the Temptation and the Expulsion; as well as the Small and Great Drawing Rooms which are considered some of the finest examples of mid-Georgian rooms in Ireland, featuring the transitional character rococo to neoclassical. The Great Hall is the fourth impressive room which was refashioned around 1825 and includes period joinery and fireplaces, with a frieze of carvings dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries.
