A charming suit of armour in miniature, perched on a gilded console between the windows, gives this room its name.

It lies at the centre of the east front, set behind the entrance portico, the crisply carved capitals of which can be appreciated at close quarters. The room enjoys stunning views over the lake while inside, the elegant decoration, with various effects of green, is painted to imitate oak panelling.

The Regency chimneypiece in white marble was moved here from the former Billiard Room.

Above it hangs a portrait of Robert Webb painted in 1735 by Thomas Frye who was born in the Irish midlands, at Edenderry not far from Ballyfin.
