Almost anything you could dream, you’ll find at this 40 acre estate in Ireland. Here a few dozen of your closest friends and family can join you for a fantastical gathering inside the eclectic mansion or out in the green gardens. Guests will sleep easily in one of three sunny houses, where every bedroom has an en suite bathroom and custom decor.

Here you can choose the venue to fit your party - the intimate dining room, the larger Ballroom, or the grand Garden Room. Or you can entertain groups of 100 outside, where children can frolic on the playground and adults can get some fresh air in the extensive gardens (playing croquet, or walking by the stream). Art, sports, entertainers, and more can all be brought to the estate - just ask, and it can be arranged.

Though this estate feels like a country of its own, it's accessible! Kinsale (2 km) is the nearest town, while Cork International Airport can be reached in a 20 minute drive.
