1961 – Journey’s End, Howth, Co. Dublin
Built by Andrew Devane of Robinson Keefe Devane as a family home for himself. This was a stunning modern house on a magnificent site overlooking Dublin bay, perched on 300 foot high cliffs. Devane bought Journey’s End Lodge a small cottage on a glorious, wilderness site in Baily for £3600 in 1948. Eventually the family sold up, and the house has gone through different ownerships. The building, has sadly, been heavily altered since the late 1970s.
