Weir writes that this house was built by the Macnamaras. Francis Macnamara lived at Arran View in 1837. Occupied by Robert Johnston at the time of Griffith's Valuation, the Johnstons continued to live there until at least the late 1870s. The original building appears to have been demolished and modern housing constructed at the site. The Johnston family were connected with that of Kilmurvey House on the Aran Islands.
