Description The house at Renvyle was inhabited by the O'Flahertys in 1811 and was described by Henry Blake in his ''Letters from the Irish Highlands''.The Blakes went to live at Renvyle in the early 1820s and an additional storey was added in the mid 19th century. Run as a guest house in the 1880s, it was bought by Oliver St John Gogarty in 1917. Badly burnt in 1923 he rebuilt it as a hotel.
