The 18th Century Coach House in Palmerstown, combines old tradition with new contemporary design. It opened to the public on the 6th December 2004 and was officially opened by An Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern TD.
The Coach House is a new and innovative project of Stewarts Care Ltd, which offers an outreach programme for rehabilitative training and sheltered employment for people with learning disabilities.
The Coach House is situated in the middle of Palmerstown village fronting onto the Old Lucan Road. Today there is no trace of the coaches or teams of horses which it was originally built to accommodate as such things are long forgotten, part of more sedate and elegant times past. Today it is home to a treasure trove of beautifully designed hand crafted pottery, ceramics and textiles many made by Stewarts Workshops.
