Tyrone House, built in 1779, is in a dominating position by the sea about 2 miles from the village of Kilcolgan in Co. Galway. The stonework is in relatively good condition and the basic shape of the house remains intact. There are three stories over a basement which combine to give the house an imposing presence.

The original owner of Tyrone House was Christopher St. George and it lay derelict for many years in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Locals burned it down in 1921 when it was rumoured to be a base for the Black & Tan army during the War of Independence. In the 1830s it was described as 'a beautiful residence' and it still is today, but in a different way.
