Coolcronan House was built by Edmond Pery at the time of his marriage to Sarah Jane Knox Gore in the mid-nineteenth century. The family owned the property until the 1950s. The Irish Tourist Association File states that it was erected in 1860 by the Knox Gores. It was extensively renovated in the late 1990s and is still extant and available as holiday accommodation.
