Glanleam was the home of the Knight of Kerry in Valentia. Tradition claims the property was first built in the eighteenth century as a linen mill, which was later remodelled as a house. In 1837 Lewis mentions it as the "beautiful seat of the Knight of Kerry". At the time of Griffith's Valuation, it was valued at £31. In 1906 it was still the property of the Knight of Kerry and valued at £75. In 1943 the Irish Tourist Association survey noted that it was the owned by Lord Monteagle. It is still extant and now operates as a luxury guesthouse, famous for its tropical gardens.
