Doneraile Court & Wildlife Park comprises of approximately 166 hectares and is an outstanding example of an 18th century landscaped park in the Capability Brown style. It is located in Doneraile, County Cork.

The lands at Doneraile can be traced back to the Synan Family who arrived in Doneraile in the 13th century. The lands were purchased by the Lord President Of Munster, Sir Willian St Ledger, in 1636 whose family remained in residence until 1969. Today the house and 166ha estate is in the care of the OPW who are responsible for its management and presentation.

Visitors to the park can enjoy magnificent Capability Brown style vistas, specimen tree avenues, formal still water ponds and view the various herds of deer grazing along side rare breed Kerry cattle.
