Description

(Reference number: 263319) Termon House, a former 18th century land agent's house in Maghery, near Dungloe, is located in the heart of the Gaeltacht area. Termon House was built by the Marquis Conyngham in the 1770s for his agent, but archaeological remains in the immediate surroundings (an old lime kiln and the remains of a clachan) indicate a much older occupancy. The house has a stormy history. Local anecdotes and archaeological evidence present a picture of absenteeism, land clearance, and emigration. A beautiful and unique defensive Famine Wall still surrounds the house. The wall, a unique vernacular structure, was built around the house as the final public works project designed to alleviate suffering during the famine in 1847. Features: 2 double bedrooms 1 twin bedroom 1 bathroom Separate shower room, suitable for assisted disabled Open fire Oil fired central heating Washing machine Iron and ironing board Radio Travel cot for babies, on request Garden Garden furniture.
