Doneraile Wildlife Park
Doneraile Wildlife Park was named as Ireland’s fourth-most-popular ‘free to enter’ by Fáilte Ireland, attracting over 480,000 visitors last year!
The Park comprises approx. 166 hectares and is an outstanding example of 18th Century landscape. The park is a place for all ages & the pathways are generally accessible for people with special needs. Explore the numerous trails and walks as well as a number of deer herds which can be viewed along many of these walks, have a picnic by the lake while watching the swans or letting the kids enjoy the playground.
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 a perfect way to start or finish your visit.
