I would recommend bringing a flashlight. It's dark walking up to the mansion and also wear flat shoes.

A beautiful estate. The information on the Gore site was excellent however not much more was added during the tour unless questions were asked. A pleasant evening.

If old houses, mansions or castles are your thing, this tour is for you! Completed in 1806, much of the house is original or has been restored to its original cofiguration. Fascinating details. A really nice way to spend a couple of hours.
