Detailed Description, Photographs & Full Dimensions in Attached Brochure

A romantic castellated mansion enjoying a rich historical provenance and a quite spectacular and remarkable coastal position, with its own private harbour and ease of access to Dublin's city centre and international airport. The magnificent working harbour is one of only two in private hands in Dublin and provides direct sea access. Inside there is a real connection to the waterside position with magical sea views from all the principal rooms.

In all the accommodation extends to some 536 square metres / 5773 square feet, including a lodge house. The grounds comprise approximately 0.3 hectare / 0.75 acre (0.4 hectare / 0.8acres to shoreline).

Dublin city centre less than 10 miles / 16 km approx. Dublin International Airport 16 miles / 25 km approx. Dalkey village 0.34 mile / 550m approx. M50 orbital motorway interchange 3.5 miles / 5.5 km approx. Dublin Rapid Transit Train (DART) from Dalkey to central Dublin takes 30 minutes.

A most appealing detached Victorian waterfront mansion spectacularly positioned with panoramic coastal views. The magnificent views stretch from Dun Laoghaire over the bay to Howth peninsula, taking in the rocky sea shore and Dalkey Island and The Muglins.

Enjoying a rich provenance and history, Inniscorrig was built circa 1847 by the renowned Dublin physician Sir Dominic Corrigan, who first diagnosed the heart condition now known as Corrigan's Pulse. He built Inniscorrig as a summer retreat. Prominent guests included Kings Edward VII and George V of England. The visits were commemorated by a crown and star set in pebbles into the patio terraces on either side of the front door along with elaborate plasterwork motifs throughout. Corrigan, himself, is commemorated in a granite bust over the front door.

The Italianate gardens are well thought out and seamlessly link the house and grounds, arched granite statue niches either side of the front door wonderfully combining with a series of Gothic arches. They protect a 'secret garden' and enticingly frame the sea and island views.

A large decked terrace off the sea-front elevation leads to a lawn terrace and to the harbour terrace. Protected from westerly winds this large harbour terrace provides a wonderful harbourside sanctuary and a unique entertaining plaza.

The Boat House suits as an occasional or party bar and a bathing hut is fitted with wc and a shower.

The harbour is quite extraordinary and includes a working winch, capable of lifting in a Jet Ski or small boat, and boasts a separate tidal swimming pool.

Inniscorrig impressively exploits the exceptional setting with all the principal rooms enjoying extensive sea views, creating a tangible connection to the sea.

Sympathetically and comprehensively restored in recent years the house benefits from modernisation, including a myriad of modern conveniences and fittings but, importantly, also incorporating fresh and modern design.

The interiors are certainly rich in character, the visit of English Kings responsible for some exquisite plasterwork that include Tudor roses and mosaics, but light colours and intelligent furnishings provide a vibrant and contemporary feel to create an exceptional modern home.

The impressive front door opens into a large reception hall, itself leading to the stair hall, study and double drawing room. The dining room combines with the kitchen and a large Hampton conservatory and adjoining outdoor timber deck terrace to provide a wonderful living space. There are 4 bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor, the Master Bedroom Suite being particularly generous and complete with a bedroom, dressing room and bathroom. A fifth bedroom occupies the second floor or tower.

The lower ground floor has a large family or cinema room, a home office, various storage and utility rooms and a great boiler room - ideal for drying wet suits and sailing paraphernalia. The lodge house provides additional independent accommodation.

A quite spectacular house enjoying a truly spectacular position with uninterrupted and panoramic coastal views, where a natural habitat with dolphins, seals and numerous sea birds are enjoyed.

Located on the periphery of picturesque Dalkey town, a heritage town with Dalkey Castle & Heritage Centre as a focal point, with the town centre within short walking distance where a good selection of restaurants, bars and cafes can be enjoyed. Shopping includes a butchers shop, a fish shop, delicatessen, health food shop, craft shop, newsagents, a general grocery store, a wine shop, off-licence and assorted artisan shops and weekly market. The DART train railway can be accessed in the town, giving access to Dublin city centre within about 30 minutes commute. The magnificent working harbour is one of only two in private hands in Dublin and provides direct access to the sea and includes a working crane winch and tidal swimming pool. The harbour complex has a timber deck entertaining terrace and a peninsula like platform right at the sea's edge giving excellent entertaining opportunity. Electric security gates provide vehicle access, a large gravelled forecourt providing good parking, and there is separate pedestrian access. The grounds extend in all to approx. 0.8 acre to the shoreline and are extremely private, being enclosed by high stone walls.
