Castle Cove House is a spacious and light home commanding a wonderful riverside setting, fronting directly onto the river Bandon. The magnificent setting affords spectacular views of the estuary and across towards Compass Hill. The house sits within a generous site of some 2.42 hectares with a river frontage of some 400 metres.

Only 2 km upstream from Kinsale and under the shadow of the last remaining sliver of the 13th Century De Coursey castle, the house is somewhat unique in that it enjoys almost complete seclusion without any neighbouring properties yet is located within walking distance of the town. The house is accessed by a private drive and is tucked away surrounded by woodland.

The property dates from the 1970's, was extended in the 1990's and was home to rock legend Rory Gallagher until 1984. The accommodation extends to some 280 sq m (3000 sq ft) arranged on two floors to include two reception rooms, study, conservatory together with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (2 en suite). There is a sitting room at first floor level with large windows making the most of the beautiful views looking out onto the Bandon River. The house has been designed to make the most of the beautiful views and mature gardens with large windows offer stunning views from all living areas and the master bedroom.

The house provides an idyllic spot to enjoy wonderful sunsets on the river and glimpses of the abundant wildlife on the estuary including swan, heron, otter, seal and the occasional dolphin.

This area of South West Ireland is of outstanding beauty with its dramatic coastline, unspoilt locations and safe beaches. Leisure activities are well catered for with Kinsale providing excellent boating, yachting and fishing facilities from its two marinas. There are several championship golf courses in the region with the renowned Old Head course within 15 minutes' drive. Other recreational pursuits include walking, bathing, surfing, and horse riding. There are numerous cultural events held throughout the year, such as the Kinsale Arts Festival, the Cork Jazz Festival, Cork Film Festival, Kinsale Gourmet Festival along with a thriving music and opera programme. Kinsale is also home to some fine restaurants, contributing to its title as Gourmet Capital of Ireland along with several hotels and many welcoming pubs.
