    Ballygriggan House is an imposing country house property which has been much improved and extended in recent years. Set in an idyllic rural setting in the rolling farmland of north County Cork, the property commands delightful aspects with far reaching views over the surrounding countryside.

    Approached by a tree-lined drive, the house occupies an elevated yet secluded and private position, with bright sunny aspects. The two-storey house has a six-bay front with offset entrance porch and a six-bay side elevation with recessed center. The impressive accommodation has a practical layout extending to some 770 sq metres (8200 sq ft) of manageable floor area.

    The house has undergone a comprehensive program of upgrading and extension in recent years to double the existing floor area together with new heating and hot water systems and a double garage. The accommodation is all of generous proportions and includes reception hall, four reception rooms, seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms, with five en suite.

    The entire extends to the whole townland of Ballygriggan and is bounded to the entire eastern and northern perimeter by the delightful trout stream, the river Awbeg. The house is well placed to the center of its lands, which extend in their entirety to some 57.50 hectares, mainly in pasture.


    Ballygriggan House is located in a scenic rural area some 5 km from the charming village of Castletownroche, well served with churches, school, shops, butcher, pharmacy, garages and pubs. Mallow and Fermoy provide comprehensive financial and leisure facilities together with a range of shopping and services. The house is well served for access to Cork, Cork and Shannon International Airports and to the M8 Motorway.

    The area is renowned for its natural beauty of its rich undulating farmland and wooded river valleys located between the Ballyhoura and Nagle Mountains. The river Awbeg, a tributary of Ireland’s premier salmon river -the river Blackwater - forms much of the boundary to the property.

    There are many leisure and sporting amenities nearby. The area provides some of the finest fishing to the Rivers Blackwater, Awbeg and Funcheon with golf well catered for locally at Mallow, Charleville, Mitchelstown and Fermoy. Hunting is with the Duhallow with racing at Mallow (Cork Race Course) and Killarney. There is an active point-to-point calendar over the winter months.
