Drumleek Farmhouse was built in the early 1900s and was purchased in 1922 by the Greer family. It was one of the first houses in the area to have electricity and was the first to own a tv and was often used as a céili house.

The farm is an angler’s haven as it has a river and lake located on it. The river meanders through the low lying meadows and it is open for anglers to fish without a license. It is teaming with wild rainbow and brown trout.
The lake on the farm, known as Milltown Lake, is stocked by the local angling club and we provide guests with a license free of charge. There is a jetty located on the farm shore.
