You could easily idle away a morning or afternoon. Exploring Derrynane House and gardens. The fairy houses are great if you have little girls with you.

The cafe out the back serves lovely fresh sandwiches.

Make sure to make time for the amazing beach up the road. Head for the blue flag one with the life guards. Spectacular!!!

We stopped here with every intention of visiting the house but it was a beautiful sunny day and we decided to take a walk on the beach. It was almost deserted and you could walk for hours on the beach and smooth rocks. The view over the Atlantic was remarkable and a long walk to the old ruins and cemetery was well worth it. Ended the walk with a cup of tea at the cafe.

Along with the history connected to this area, the beach walk is a must-see experience for nature lovers. Wander the beaches, climb the rocks, breathe the Irish sea air. Our tour guide insisted on a quick walk, then couldn't tear us away. Most of us even skipped lunch to spend more time on the beach. Truly gorgeous.

Forget O'Connell Street in Dublin, Derrynane House offers the real experience of Daniel O'Connell and is surrounded by beautiful woodland grounds and the stunning Derrynane Beach and shoreline. We tried the beach walk guide albeit the numbering in the guide did not match the waymarks but it was fascinating nevertheless. Finish a visit to the House café which was very good and reasonably priced.
