Commenting, Shane Roche, General Manager said “visitors regularly enquire about the history of Innishannon House and throughout the years we have accumulated bits and pieces about it’s history. The house was built in 1720 by the Orpen Family and sold to F.Prescott, a prosperous local land owner, who titled it ‘Frankfort House’ It was later renamed ‘Innishannon House.’

“We also know that Winston Churchill did spend summers at his Aunt’s house in Innishannon and the bath which he used, was acquired by Innishannon House at some stage. That bath is now standing in Room 2 in the House! We intend to mark this milestone of 300 years in 2020 and we are always very interested in hearing local knowledge on the history of Innishannon House.”
