Ardnaree Cottage dates to at least the early eighteenth century and possibly earlier. It was part of the Gore estate. Wilson, writing in 1786, refers to "Mr. Jones' charming demesne". In 1837 it was the residence of Thomas Jones and in 1857 it was leased by Col Arthur Knox Gore to Anne Hearne when it was valued at £10. The National Inventory of Architectural Heritage notes it as an important component of the domestic built heritage of Ballina. It is still extant and well-maintained.
