As I could only travel in my own county at this time in 2020 I went to visit Derrynane House. It has been on my bucket list for ages. It is the ancestral home of Daniel O'Connell who is known as the Liberator a very powerful person in Irish history. The house is lovely to visit, you watch a video of the history and layout of the house. It was very interesting. I found the turnoff hard to find you could miss it.

Cash only entry tickets considering the current circumstances is mind boggling. Man on the desk rolled his eyes when i queried this, not his fault, so id love to know who's call this is??? Overall very disappointing, little info on the man himself and very few actual exhibits, could be so much more but as an Irish history buff, had to come here and in fairness entry is only €3

Informative video, some interesting elements in the house and fair price. Cash only €5. Options of trails for walks. Bad signage.

Walking the beach and the strand, lovely views. A very serene experience, lots of walks to enjoy also.

Nice place for a quick stop after visiting the Derrynane Blue Flag beach, one of the nicer ones in Ireland. This is a historical site, a museum today, which was the ancestral home of Daniel O'Connell.

We tried to visit the house today but due to the incompetence of the OPW, that wasn't possible. We had driven for over an hour to get there and were told that the only way to obtain a ticket was to stand outside in the unsheltered downpour for an hour and ten minutes. The two members of staff would not let us buy tickets for the next tour and sit in our car for the 70 minutes 'in case we didn't come back'. How utterly bizarre considering they'd already have our money. The rain was torrential and this was their only system, no way to book in advance. So much for holidaying in Ireland when our national visitor sites go out of their way to treat visitors like scum. How embarrassing for us as a country.

This is a fantastic and great for anyone wishing to brush up on their history of Daniel O'Connell. The tour is self-guided but is well laid out and very easy to get around. The tour begins with a film before setting off around the house, with an information sheet to guide you. There are beautiful gardens and a stunning beach on the land, so this is a must-see even if you just want some outdoor activities or picnic. Staff were very friendly and helpful also.

I wasn't really interested in the house but was part of my tour of that part of Ireland. So I walked the gardens at 1st. I didn't realize there was a magnificent coastal area just to the left over the hill. It was like walking into a painting, serene and pristine. I spent a time just staring at it and then walked a little. It was the highlight of the estate.

This historic house is not all that big, even after Daniel O'Connell's expansion. It contains original furnishings, but the best part is that the size enables visitors to take in several parts of the Derrynane National Historic Park, while getting the most out of each part. I like history and gardens, so that was my focus. My wife decided that she wanted to sea the beach. Anyway, O'Connell was a figure who must be understood to fully understand Ireland, and this is a great place to start.
