Dunsandle House is an 18th century Palladian house which is now largely in ruins. It was built towards the end of the 18th century for Denis Daly, M.P. By the 1870s the Daly family owned one of the largest estates in Co. Galway, which amounted to over 33,000 acres. It was sold in 1954 and was partly demolished in 1958 although parts of it are still standing.

Some of the ornate plasterwork still remains and gives an idea of the former grandeur of Dunsandle House. Because of the deterioration of the internal and external walls, it is only when you are in the basement that you get a sense of the size of the original house. There is also evidence of the stable yard and walled garden.
