A house marked on the Taylor and Skinner's map but not on the first Ordnance Survey map. In 1786 Wilson refers to it as the seat of Valentine Blake. The walls of the garden still remain and this was the venue for the Hollymount Show at one time.

Run as a guest house in the 1880s, it was bought by Oliver St John Gogarty in 1917. Badly burnt in 1923 he rebuilt it as a hotel.
