The house, known as Glanquin House, is situated in a beautiful valley with Slieve na Glasha to the north and Mullagh Mor and its National Park to the south.

This is a period house in the Georgian style built by the Russells, Scottish landowners, in the 19th century, and has been in the McCormack family for the past 30 years.

It became the location for the very popular ‘Fr. Ted’ television series through a chance conversation in a pub in Kilfenora in 1993.

Joe Mardis, the location manager for the series, has family connections in the area. While having a drink with friends from the locality they came up with the idea of setting the series in North Clare.
