Glenmaroon Landholding

Glenmaroon House is a magnificent detached, Tudor style, Edwardian house constructed by the Hon (Arthur) Ernest Guinness in circa 1905 and extended in 1911.  The subject structure was constructed as an addition to an original house, previously known as Knockmaroon Lodge located on the south side of Knockmaroon Hill.  Both houses (Southside – Knockmaroon Lodge and Northside – Glenmaroon House) were connected via a covered footbridge, since replaced by a more modern structure and over time both the North and South houses were renamed, collectively, as Glenmaroon, or Glenmaroon House.
