Located on a level landscape. The Civil Survey (1654) records ‘two thatched houses’, the property of a Mr. Plunkett of Dunshaughlin in 1640, in Upper Gunockes townland (Simington 1943, 121). Upper and Lower Gunnoggs are represented on the Dunboyne barony and parish maps from the Down Survey (1656-8) but no castle or substantial house is represented in either. Bence-Jones (1978) notes that the present two storey, three bay Gunnocks House was built by Laurence Ward in 1806 onto a structure that was originally thatched.
