Description A house on the estate of the Provost and Fellows of Trinity College, Dublin, occupied by the Blakes of Menlo in the late 18th century/early 19th century. Thomas Blake of Brendrum, county Galway, married Mary Lynch, granddaughter of Sir Roebuck Lynch Blosse, 2nd baronet, and they were the parents of the 9th and 10th Blake of Menlo baronets. By the time of Griffith's Valuation the most valuable house in the townland of Breandrim was a herd's house of £4.15 occupied by C. B. Kenny. On the 25-inch edition Ordnance Survey map of the 1890s Breandrim House is recorded as "in ruins". Old yard walls remain at this site.
