In 1798, the Battle of Glenmalure was fought in the valley where the mountain hut is located. This hostel is a very basic mountain hut with no electricity or running water.
While the playwright, J.M Synge owned this estate, he wrote the play "Shadow of the Glen" which was set in the house. Maud Gonne McBride, who inspired many of W.B. Yeats poems, also owned the house and Iseult, her daughter, lived there after her marriage. Ownership then passed to Kathleen Lynn who donated it to An Óige.
