Derrynane House

Recommended
Set in a lovely estate planted with rare trees, it is possible to visit the house where Daniel O'Connell, the Great Liberator, spent his childhood, before going to school in Cobh and then to France. The 19C property is packed with moving souvenirs of the famous patriot ranging from personal belongings, documents, furniture, family portraits and pictures, including an amazing work in which he is depicted as Hercules breaking his chains!
