Derrynane House, National Historic Park


Republic of Ireland

Derrynane House is the ancestral home of one of Ireland’s most famous historical figures, Daniel O'Connell, lawyer, politician and statesman. Situated on 120 hectares of parklands on the scenic Kerry coast, the House displays many relics of O'Connell s life and career. The main street in Dublin, O’Connell Street is called after him.

Derrynane National Historic Park, plantations and garden walks were laid out in the 18th and 19th Centuries, principally north and west of the house. Some features of the demesne are strongly associated with Daniel O'Connell, including the old summer house.

The main area of the gardens, set inland and to the north of the house, can be reached through a tunnel under the road.

There is an audio visual presentation and guided tours are also available on request. They also have guidebook in English, Irish, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Dutch.
