Edge of Europe, Heart of Ireland

Derrynane National Historic Park

Derrynane National Historic Park is located at the very westerly tip of the Iveragh Peninsula in Co. Kerry. Sheltered within the woodland stands Derrynane House, the ancestral home of Daniel O’Connell, lawyer, politician and statesman, and one of the great figures in modern Irish history.

Today some 120 hectares (300 acres) of the lands of Derrynane, together with Derrynane House, make up Derrynane National Historic Park, under the management of National Historic Properties of the Office of Public Works.

The House also boasts a beautiful tearoom which is open from March until December. Dog-walking is permitted, but dogs must be kept on a lead in public areas. There is designated special needs parking available in Derrynane, and the house and gardens have level access. There is a lift present in Derrynane House, and an induction loop system at reception.
