Derrynane House is the ancestral home of Daniel O'Connell, lawyer, politician and statesman. It is situated on 120 hectares of parklands on the scenic Kerry coast, 3.5kms (2.2mi) from Caherdaniel. The house and grounds have been preserved and are open to the public every day during the summer months and anyone touring the Ring of Kerry should make a point of visiting.

The ancestral home of Daniel O’Connell, Derrynane House is a public museum commemorating one of Ireland’s leading historical figures. Barrister, early civil rights activist, politician and statesmen, Daniel O’Connell was a huge figure amid the upheavals of the early 19th Century in Ireland.

Derrynane House was opened as a museum in 1967, the house is furnished with family portraits, writings and a great many items relating to Daniel O’Connell, from the dueling pistols used when he killed rival John D’Esterre in 1815 and the black glove he wore in remembrance ever since, to the fabulous gold chariot he rode through Dublin amidst jubilant crowds on his release from prison. A video presentation outlines the life and times of the great man.

There is an outdoor self-guiding-trail on the estate and multi-lingual guide booklets are available. Guided Tours of the house are available on request and there is also an audio visual presentation in English. Facilities include: toilets, disabled toilet, car park and coffee shop.
