The Elizabethan style building was the headquarters for American troops stationed in Northern Ireland during World War II and was visited by General Eisenhower – who went on to become 34th President of the United States – in 1944.

Visitors can see and hear how the D-Day landings were nurtured and planned within Brownlow House’s walls in audio and visual displays in its two onsite museums. The building, which boasts 52 chimney stacks, also hosts elegant tea rooms and is set on the edge of Lurgan Park in County Armagh.

Management at Brownlow House said they were delighted to receive Tourism NI’s Quality Grading saying it was another step in the progress of ‘Lurgan Castle’ as the venue is known locally. Tourism NI’s Quality Visitor Attraction plaque was unveiled by the Mayor of Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Councillor Darryn Causby alongside members of Tourism NI, council staff and other invited guests.
