Description A house built in the 1780s, also known as Lough O'Connell. It was the home of Thomas Steele and in 1821 passed to his nephew "Honest Tom" Steele, friend of Daniel O'Connell. In the late 1840s Cullane was inherited by Tom Steele's niece who had married Charles Studdert of Newmarket House. Their son Robert Wogan Studdert held the house valued at £25 in fee at the time of Griffith's Valuation. It remained in Studdert hands until 1954 and is now a ruin.
