This magnificent large period house is located at Ballintaggart as you approach Dingle town. It was built in 1703 as a hunting lodge for the Earl of Cork. This commanding iconic property was a private residence up until the mid 1990s when it became a tourism destination and was run as a hostel and campsite. From the late 2000s until 2019 it was run as a popular bespoke wedding venue with guest accommodation.
The property is in need of refurbishment throughout and has a lot of magnificent original features. It is being sold unfurnished. The main house consists of an entrance porch leading on into the main reception hall with two large reception rooms off to the right and left. Also on the ground floor you have a large kitchen area, store room, bar area, public toilets and a back kitchen space.
The first floor consists of 6 large ensuite bedrooms with commanding views of the surrounding countryside and Dingle Bay. The charming courtyard off the rear of the main house has another circa 22 bedrooms which are mostly ensuite and are in need of upgrading. There are stables and a large campsite area adjacent to the house.
The property does require investment in order to bring it back to its former glory but offers a purchaser an abundance of great potential in moving forward as either a private residence or to re establish as an exclusive guest house with a wedding venue and campsite business potential. The property has a full special events restaurant liquor licence also.
The Gate Lodge
The property also has a lovely gate lodge at the entrance to the original driveway to the property with views over Dingle Harbour and consists of an entrance porch, open plan kitchen/dining/living space, toilet and shower and a loft bedroom.
The Holiday Homes
There are 12 by 3 bedroom fully furnished luxury turnkey holiday homes adjacent to the main house which are currently rented as Dingle Manor Holiday Homes. These properties are truly in turn key condition and offer any potential purchaser an immediate income stream. The houses command spectacular views and consist of an entrance hallway, open plan kitchen/dining/living areas, utility, 3 bedrooms, 1 ensuite and a main bathroom.
This is truly a unique opportunity to purchase an iconic period home and estate in this bustling tourism town of Dingle along with the beautifully finished 12 by 3 Bedroom holiday houses. There is also the option to purchase the main Manor House on it’s own on circa 6.2 acres which includes the campsite for a guide price of €1.3 million.
