The entire Estate consists of the centre-piece Manor House, newly-built Stone Lodge and 2 renovated Estate Cottages (Cottage and Coach House), set within a walled estate consisting of 24 acres of gardens, fields and forest with river frontage.

Manor House

The centrepiece of the Estate is a beautiful Georgian Manor House built c. 1770 which stands in an elevated south-facing position with far reaching views over the West Cork countryside.
This riverfront Estate has evolved over 20 years of complete renovation, restoration, enhancements and upgrades by the current owners, whilst retaining the historical heritage and period charm of a period home. It is fully setup for 21st Century living including high speed fibre optic broadband throughout the whole property.

The compound is a wonderful, magical spot whose supreme privacy is balanced by its’ proximity to Kinsale, Ireland’s premier tourist town, accessibility to Ireland’s second city Cork and its international airport, and the Old Head Golf Course.

It enjoys complete privacy as no properties overlook the Estate and it is surrounded by 12′ stone walls. The property has 2 main access driveways with electric security gates and an additional pedestrian entrance which could be further developed, to offer a third road access.

The stately Manor House and Estate Lodges offer a variety of uses including home office, hosting/entertainment space, lodging for extended family, holiday rentals, guests, security or onsite staff accommodation.

If the new owner is interested in further developing the Estate and converting it to a commercial venture, a feasibility study has been completed which is available on request.
