Derrynane House is the ancestral home of Daniel O’Connell, lawyer, politician and statesman. O’Connell was one of Ireland’s leading figures, known by the nation as the Great Liberator. (The main street in Dublin, Ireland’s capital city, is called after him).
The tranquil plantations and garden walks were laid out in the 18th & 19th centuries, while the house displays many relics of O’Connell’s life and career. The main area of the gardens, set inland and to the North of the house, can be reached though a tunnel under the road.
