Overview
Manor House -
6 Bedrooms, 8 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14
Clonakilty, County Cork
Luxury on the Wild Atlantic Way, West Cork.
Originally built in 1771 for Colonel George Sandes the house was famously the home for 30 years of Noel Redding, bass guitarist for The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Clonakilty music hero.

The house is really beautiful. It is full of history while having every mod con. Very well equipped for cooking. The rooms are fabulous, each one with its own character. Plenty of room for everybody. There is a cove at the end of the lane and when we visited, there was a mobile sauna. Quite an experience to be in...
