Home of the Jenings family in the 18th and 19th centuries. Mount Jennings was held in fee by Benjamin Jenings at the time of Griffith's Valuation when the house was valued at £20. It was the childhood home of the ballad singer, Delia Murphy. Her parents still resided in the house in the 1940s. The roof was taken off the house in the 1970s and it is now demolished.

Built as an agricultural school in the 1830s, it was not a success and swiftly closed. The property was rented in the 1850s from the Lindseys by Francis Laurie, a farmer from Scotland. He died in 1865 and James Simpson took over the lease. Charles Bingham Jenings and his wife, formerly of Mount Jenings, lived at Kilrush for the first three years of the 20th century. The building is now a ruin.
