The main residence of Ballinluska House is a, ‘Detached five-bay two-storey former coast guard station, built c.1890, having two-storey box end-bays to front (south).

Ballinluska House

“This elegantly proportioned former coast guard station is a prominent landmark of the Myrtleville townscape. The historic character of the building has been retained through the retention of much of its historic features including fine sash and casement windows, striking red brick chimneystacks and window surrounds as well as a finely proportioned pair of box bays. The bartizans located to the side elevations lend an interesting defensive aspect to the building. The coastguard was armed, thus a potential weapons source for insurgents. The coastguard was established in 1831 as part of the customs service and became part of the Admiralty in 1857. This coastguard station forms one of a number which were built in Cork harbour to monitor the movements of foreign warships, enforce custom and excise, and implement British law in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries”.
