Clonalis House CASTLEREA


Teach Chluain Mhalais aka Clonalis House  is the ancestral seat of the O'Conor Don -  the only Royal Gaelic family left in Ireland, who are still living on part of their lands. 

The Census of Elphin records Margaret O'Conor as residing in Clonalis in 1749.

The present Clonalis House was built in the late 1870s replacing an earlier Georgian house, the ruins of which can be seen at Clonalis.    

In 1814 Clonalis is recorded as the residence of John Balfe

In 1857, Charles Owen O'Conor, the O'Conor Don, lived here when the existing house was valued at £35 (Griffith's Valuation).
