|Description:||The representatives of Kean Mahony were occupying Castlequin at the time of Griffith's Valuation, when it was valued at £28 15s. In 1837 Lewis notes it as the seat of Kean Mahony. The Ordnance Survey Name Books, of 1840, mention that it had begun in September 1839 and was still being built. It is likely that this was a renovation of an earlier house. In 1894 it was the residence of Mrs.Mahony. In 1943 he Irish Tourist Association Survey mentions it having a chapel and library, "once the home of the McDonagh Mahonys, now in a derelict state and said to be distinguished by a ghost". Bary states that the house had probably been built in the late eighteenth century and continued to be occupied by the Mahony family until the early twentieth century when it was sold. It eventually fell into ruin in the 1940s.|
