Displayed on some of the well-preserved Victorian furniture are some of the crafts in which the Sisters are presently involved, including bobbin lace, doll making, and photography.
To continue the tour, visitors take the main stairs to the second floor. The stairway, which is quite safe and secure, has been in this location since the mid to late 19th century. Many, many people have walked up and down these steps, and while Father O’Reilly and young Félix Varela would have used stairs located elsewhere in the house, their presence can be felt on the second floor. The vantage point from the upstairs hall window affords a beautiful view of the garden.
