Additional Information

Lugdine Park is an outstanding estate in a scenic waterfront location on c. 35 acres just outside the town of Glengarriff. Wonderfully secluded by the surrounding woodland, it overlooks Glengarriff Bay and its own private islands in the foreground with the Cork & Kerry mountains in the distance.

Occupying one of the finest coastal settings in West Cork, the house commands an unrivalled elevated situation. The estate consists of the main house, two islands, a number of enchanting woodland walks, slipway, a private beach and a range of estate buildings, some requiring restoration.

Built in 1935, the house measures c. 3,700 sq ft and consists of 2 large reception rooms, 5 bedrooms, 2 of which are en-suite, kitchen, utility room, pantry and cellar. Positioned to take advantage of its superb aspect, the house exudes wonderful charm with its period features.

The property enjoys a storied history of owners, the most prominent being Maureen O`Hara who resided here for over 30 years. She bought the estate with her late husband Charles Blair in 1970 and lived there on and off until 2005 when she took up permanent residence there. O`Hara tells the story that her late husband – a pioneering pilot of seaplanes – announced the house was `perfect` while they were driving down the avenue to take a first look at the property. When she asked how he could know without having seen the house, he said: `It`s the perfect place to land a seaplane`.

O`Hara was not the only famous owner of Lugdine Park, the land was owned originally by the industrialist William Martin Murphy who was also founder of the Irish Independent newspaper. His son William Lombard Murphy built the property in 1935 and later passed it to his younger sister Eva Murphy who expanded the grounds and improved the house. Thereafter, the estate ‘changed hands` a number of times before Maureen O`Hara bought it.

Located on the outskirts of the village and nestled against the Glengarriff Golf Course, the property is ideal for those who love the outdoor lifestyle with private direct harbour access and total privacy.

Glengarriff is a most attractive and popular village on the Ring of Beara. Surrounded by high rugged mountains, its sheltered harbour is an ideal location for boating. It has a superb scenic setting but is also conveniently located between two large market towns, Bantry (15 min) and Kenmare (25 min). Cork and Kerry Airports are a 90 min drive which makes this a very accessible destination.
