Description: Single-storey lodge or fort, c.1800, built in the Gothic style, with crude battlemented rubble walls against the estate wall. Plan based on five-pointed star. Four rooms with central chimney and single gated doorway. Very narrow recessed external stair. Emmet's Fort is an unusual building accessible from an inner corner of the grounds of the Pearse Museum. Other arches and small buildings are discovered if walking the less frequented river path or perimeter path called Emmet's Walk, after Robert Emmet who courted Sarah Curran here.
