Home to the Graves family for centuries, Ballylickey House is a magnificent manor overlooking Bantry Bay. Built originally in 1650 but rebuilt after a fire in 1976 to its original splendour, the property stands on approx. 10 acres of mature gardens, a mix of manicured lawns and flower beds, wild gardens with riverside walks and an abundance of shrubs and trees. This charming home overlooks Bantry Bay from its private setting amongst century old trees and gardens where

the River Ovane flows into the bay.

The accommodation is currently laid out as private home with guest accommodation. The private accommodation combines well proportioned living spaces with generous bedroom accommodation. The guest rooms are all ensuite with a private guest lounge opening on to the garden. There are both private and commercial kitchens while the guests have a separate entrance and reception area.

There is the benefit of an outdoor swimming pool and pool house surrounded by an abundance of

flowers, trees and shrubs.

Outside a tree lined driveway leads to the main house with ample parking space to the front and rear. Follow the many paths which take you through the rose garden, along the river bank and through the water garden while being

surrounded by many mature trees and shrubs, some dating back over one hundred years. A mix of formal and wild the garden never sleeps with colour year round from the many plants including roses, mixed wild flowers, varieties of hydrangeas, weeping willow and fir trees, conifers, bamboo, ferns and phormiums, steps, bridges and pathways.

Nestled well in the heart of West Cork, Ballylickey is close to the well known scenic areas of Glengarriff and Kenmare between Sheeps Head Peninsula and the Beara Peninsula. This is a

remarkable part of the world, where the pace of life is laid back. For hustle and bustle of country town life, Bantry town is only 5km east famous its renowned Friday market selling local West

Cork produce.
