We shortly arrived at Shanganagh Castle, the abode of our expecting friends — Sir George and Lady Cockburn. Here we were most kindly and hospitably entertained in a handsome house, abounding in curiosities, antique and modern: with // every enjoyment heightened by agreeable society, and exquisite music. [...] / From the windows of Shanganagh you see in perfection the greater and lesser Sugar-Loaf mountains; Bray Head, a most striking promontory, besides the granite steeps of Killiny Bay, and Dalkey Island with its ruined churches. Facing the entrance stands an old Greek column on which is an inscription commemorative of the passing of the Reform Bill; and a basalt pillar from the Giant's Causeway is placed opposite the library window.
