Began in the 1830's and built in Barionial style "Storm Mount" Castle was the home of the Cleland family descendants of the Rev John Cleland rector of Newtownards from 1789-1809.

In the 1921 the castle and grounds became vacant and were acquired for the erection of the new parliament buidlings.

The castle itself has been used as the cabinet rooms of the Northern Ireland government and as the residence of the Secretary of state between 1972 and 1999.
