Antrim House will be open to the public for tours on the 23rd of October, Labour Day, between 1-4pm.

Antrim House is a prominent historic landmark in the central city. It was originally the home of successful businessman and founder of R Hannah & Co Ltd, Robert Hannah, his wife Hannah and their family.

Antrim House (named after the county of Robert’s birth) was his last home, and had all the latest conveniences including gas, electric light and plumbed bathrooms. It was designed in Italianate style by the firm of Thomas Turnbull & Son, which designed many other notable Wellington buildings. It has kauri panelling and staircase, stained glass windows (all different) and ornate, pressed metal ceilings by Wunderlich of Sydney. In the grounds are a stable block and conservatory.

Since Robert’s death in 1930, Antrim House has been home to many people – as a private hotel and public service hostel for young men. The home theme continued in 1978 when Antrim House was given to Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga. In 1981, the property was renovated and it became the National Office.

No booking is required.
