Sometime between the years of 1876 and 1957 the Kierans family occupied the property. Their son Dr James Kierans scratched his name on the study window in February 1917 and is still there to this day. The current family bought Glynch House in 1957 and it has been in the family since. The family farmed the land for over 60 years with 200 suckler cows, 400 sheep, 10,000 battery hens and 15 horses. They also began running a guest house in 1971 where they welcomed guests from all over the world. Many guests came as strangers and left as friends who made many return visits throughout the years.
