Description At the time of Griffith’s Valuation James F. Bland was leasing a property valued at £29 at Derryquin, from the Guinness estate. Lewis, in 1837, and Leet, in 1814, record the house as the seat of Francis C. Bland . The property was eventually sold by the Blands to the Warden family. In 1906 it was owned by Col. Charles W. Warden and valued at £70. The Wardens resided there until it was burnt in 1922. It was located in the grounds of what is now the Parknasilla Hotel but the ruins were demolished in 1969.
