This was the home of the Singleton Family. John Singleton, built Quinville and after some years commissioned it to be redesigned in 1830 by the Pain brothers, two innovative architects who had designed nearby Dromoland Castle for Lord Inchiquin. An 18th century house, Lewis writes that it was rebuilt in the early 19th century in the Elizabethean style, home of the Singleton family. In 1906 Quinville was in the possession of James Butler Ievers. The property was bought by the McCausland family of Drenagh, county Derry in the 20th century. In the late 1990s the house was undergoing a major restoration by the owners, the Houlihan family who offered it for sale in 2012.
