On this site in the 18th century sat an old sailing rig called The Ark. It was the home of Captain Ramsey while on shore leave He enjoyed entertaining "on board" with many lavish parties. It fell into despair and was replaced by the present house with the timbers of the rig being used throughout. Near the Ark House is the old stone Pier in the mid-1800s Moville saw many sad farewells as people left for Canada and the US from the pier.
