Old maps of County Down show Tullymurry Cottage, the
forerunner of the existing house. The cottage which still exists
today was probably built in the early 17th century and was the
precursor of an extension built ca. 1700 which comprises the
present day kitchen area and bathroom end of the house.
In Georgian times - ca 1780 - the Weir family built on the
imposing front section and resided at the house until 1828. In this
year John Marshall, a member of a wealthy local family, purchased
the house and married Charlotte Weir. The Marshall family were
extensive landowners and owned much of the Tullymurry townland;
they were also responsible during their residency for establishing
the beautiful parkland in front of the house.
Marshall family misfortune led to an insolvency situation in 1895
out of which Joseph McMinn of Castle Ennigan was able to purchase
the house and part of the Tullymurry farm. The McMinn family were a
frugal, hard working farming family in the last century but did
much to ensure that the fabric of the house was properly
maintained. The house and yard complex are now owned by the fourth
generation of the McMinn family since 1895.
2012 witnessed the very extensive refurbishment of the house and
part of the large farmyard and its migration from a farming
establishment to a rest and repose home now run by The Irish
Landmark Trust. None of the unique character nor atmoshere of the
beautiful dwelling house has been lost during the transition
