I believe this house was built by my great great great grandfather Henry Brown.  The information I have found so far is that he was a ship builder in Passage West. I cannot find a DOB but he died 21st Oct 1890.  He was married to Mary Dawson who died 2nd January 1900.  They had a daughter named Mary Brown.  She was born at Marmullane Villa in 1842.  She married William James Craig on Nov 14th 1861.  They had a son named Henry Brown Craig (my great grandfather) born 5th June 1865. He died at Marmullane House (I assume it is the same place as Marmullane Villa) in March 1945.  I know that my grandmother ,Emily Craig also lived at Marmullane for a time when she was growing up as she often mentioned the name.

I know the house is still there although my father thought it had been demolished.  From photos it appeared to get very run down for a time but when I saw it in 2017 it appeared to be in good shape.  I would love to know more about the house and who else has lived there over the years.

Type of Building:



  • I lived in Marmulane House until I was 9, when my family moved to Cork City in the late 60's.  It was a great house in which to grow up.  Things used to disappear, like tools ect, and my dad would always say, "thats old Bill Craig taking our things"  Then the item would reappear again.  We had our own resident friendly ghost.
