Manor House Convent
Manor House Convent
The original house on this site was built by the Howth family in the later part of the 17th century, and re-fronted in red brick in around 1750. It was known as Bettyville House but later renamed Manor House.

The Dowager Lady Howth lived here from 1835 to 1840. In 1854, it became the home of Richard Kelly, a wealthy merchant who, in 1864 donated the tripartite stained glass window to the new St Assan's Church. In 1952, the Manor House was sold to the Sisters of the Poor Servants of the Mother of God, who founded a school. In 1957 the house was demolished, and the present convent building and its school was built, which became known as Manor House School.
