Drishane House has been the home of the Somerville family (most notably Edith Somerville) for nine generations or nearly 250 years. Thomas Somerville built the house around 1780 in classic Georgian style, its elevations hung with purple Benduff slate and surrounded by park-like gardens with mature trees, including several rare specimens.
The house is situated at the top of the hill, with fabulous views of Castlehaven Bay and the point.
The house, garden and museum are open to the public during the months of August to October.
Drishane is the perfect venue for a romantic wedding, with many options available, including either a secluded private location for a marquee on one of the lawns, or using the reception rooms in Drishane itself. There are plenty of cottages and B&Bs nearby for guests.
