Welcome to Athenree Homestead

Athenree Homestead was built by Irish settler/pioneers Hugh and Adela Stewart in 1879 and was a working farmhouse for 30 years up to their departure in 1906.
It played an important role in the history of Athenree 
and Katikati - the whole area being part of a planned
Irish settlement.

The Homestead is located on a Western Bay of Plenty District Council Reserve at 360 Athenree Road, Athenree and is maintained by the Athenree Homestead Charitable Trust.

The house is open to the public throughout the year at the following times:

January to end March - every Sunday, 12 to 4 pm

April to end December - first Sunday of the month, 12 to 3 pm.

A donation of $5 per person helps us to maintain the property.


“The perfect location for

your special occasion.”

The Trash and Treasure event was a great success in February.

Check out the miniature horse and gig!
