History of Barrow House

history of

Barrow HousE

An old black & white photo of historic B

Sir Edward Denny was granted over 6000 acres of Munster

after the Desmond Rebellion.

After many generations, the land around Barrow

was leased to William Collis,

a Cromwellian Officer,

who married a member of the Denny family.

Barrow Harbour was the major port for the region,

servicing the monastic settlement of Ardfert

and the general area of Tralee.


A narrow entrance to the Harbour was protected

by Fenit Castle on Fenit Island.

The ruins of the castle still remain.


Along with restoring Barrow House, we are committed

to ensuring

the full history is documented and shared with all our visitors.
