Doneraile Court, the stunning centrepiece of one of Ireland’s most beautiful estates, opened its doors to the public for the first time in a generation following a €1.6million restoration by the Office of Public Works (OPW)., on June 22nd.
Doneraile Court is the stunning centrepiece of one of Ireland’s most beautiful estates. Located on the banks of the Awbeg river in north Co. Cork, the house dates from the 1720s, when it was built by Arthur St. Leger, the first Viscount Doneraile and father of the renowned Lady Freemason.
The house was modified extensively in the 19th century by later generations of St. Legers, creating the imposing and characterful building that can be enjoyed today. The kitchen wing from this period now serves as the home of the Doneraile Court tearooms and is where we will start and finish our visit.
