Georgian Mansion Estate
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.

The House is less than 2 kilometres from the outskirts of Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland. Kinsale is frequently referred to as Ireland's Riviera and enjoys a continental ambiance with a wide selection of renowned restaurants, cafes & pubs buzzing with live music, against a background of ancient forts. Visitors are captivated by the town's setting, its long waterfront, narrow streets and slate-clad houses.
Kinsale is a top class centre for many activities including sailing, yachting, deep sea fishing, diving, watersports, windsurfing, horseriding and golf. There are three golf courses including the world-famous Old Head course.
Kinsale attracts a diverse population from the four corners of the world and is one of the most sought after addresses in Ireland. This popularity is aided by its location - Cork city (40 minutes), Cork International Airport (20 minutes), Cork Railway Station (40 minutes).

How long have you owned the property?
What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
I fell in love with the beautiful Georgian style as well with the proximity to Kinsale - Ireland's Gourmet Capital.
Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
Loads! Michael Jackson, the King of Netherlands and this summer Kim Kardashian and Kayne West tried to book their honeymoon with us.
What’s the strangest or most difficult guest request you’ve ever received?
Someone once asked us if they could cut all the flowers out of garden to decorate the venue for their wedding.
For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Play Golf at Old Head - world famous golf course.
Fishy Fishy - Ireland's top seafood restaurant.
Kinsale Harbour at night.
Lastly, what insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
Kinsale and West Cork is sophisticated without being over commercialised and has so much to do in terms of world class fishing, sailing, golf etc.
A land of literary greatness, folktales, incomparably romantic landscapes and legendary good times, Ireland is an unsung hero when it comes to fantastic European destinations ripe for exploration. Drink in the atmosphere, hubbub and culture of Dublin, the splendour and sea air of Galway or strike out in your walking boots and revel in the beauty of the countryside – there’s so much to love in Ireland, whatever you choose you’ll end up leaving a piece of your heart there (and returning again and again to check on it). Luckily, we’ve got a great selection of luxury holiday homes in Ireland that make the perfect home-from-home – and they’re just as welcoming as you imagine.
