Blennerville House

Main St, Blennerville.
As you go from Dingle through Blennerville towards Tralee, this is an apparently Georgian house on LHS near the bend in the road, behind handsome gates.

Blennerville House was the residence of the founder of Blennerville, Sir Rowland Blennerhassett, 1st Baronet.
Sir Rowland was living there as at 1783, and probably built it.
Though [Heritage Council, 2001] thinks it was built late 17th century - early 18th century, which would mean it pre-dates Sir Rowland.
It was inherited by Arthur Blennerhassett probably 1821.
It was then owned by the Chute family.
Sold by Capt. Richard Chute 1919.

A model at Blennerville Windmill shows Blennerville as it would have looked in 1852.
