Marble Hill was built in the 1770s and was enlarged as the fortunes of the Burke family increased in the 19th century. In 1906 it was held by Sir Henry G. Burke and was valued at £55. As with many of the great houses in Ireland Marble Hill was burned in the early 1920s and is now a ruin with the remains of a substantial stable block to the rear of the house.

There are several established trees inside the walls of the house, one of which has a branch that is growing out the window (picture 13). Ivy has caused considerable damage both inside and out. The trees and ivy give a atmospheric feel and the red brick in some of the walls gives a great splash of colour.
