Shrewd, forthright and immensely able, he served in the Farming Society of Ireland, the Dublin Ballast Office, the Ouzel Galley Society, the Meath Hospital, the Dublin Chamber of Commerce and other bodies. A director of the Bank Of Ireland, his main interest after 1815 was in banking.

This house is included in the property mentioned in the marriage settlement of Arthur's son, Reverend William Smyth Guinness (1795- 1864), Vicar and Rector of Rathdrum, Co.
