James O'Connell was in possession of this property, valued at £10 15s, at the time of Griffith's Valuation, when the house was vacant. In 1837 Lewis notes Ahadda as the seat of Rev. Mahony. Leet refers to Richard Mahony residing at Portmagee in 1814. Bary states that the house was built by the Mahonys who resided there in the early nineteenth century. It seems to have become the home of Charles O'Connell, son-in-law of Daniel O'Connell, for a time in the 1850s. Later it was occupied by members of the Spotswood family of Valentia. It is now a ruin.
