Elegant Manor House, Groups of 6 -18
This is a large, elegant 18th century, Italianate style, Irish manor house situated in the rolling hills of the Lee valley, overlooking the medieval castle and abbey of Kilcrea.
Farran house is spectacularly set in 12 acres of mature beech woodland and landscaped gardens. The owners, John & Patricia have carried out a mammoth restoration job and the result is a luxurious, charming manor house, full of character. They opened their doors to rental guests in 1997 and haven't looked back since.
The elegant interior is full surprises. Hanging with the old paintings and engravings there are exquisite modern photographic prints. There are interesting antique furnishings throughout the house, including a 1903 Bechstein grand piano in the drawing room and a full size billiard table in the billiard room.
All main house guest rooms have large bathrooms and beautiful views over the surrounding countryside.
It is a perfect base for exploring counties Cork and Kerry. It is situated 9 miles from Blarney, 38 miles from Killarney and 10 miles from Cork city and airport.

Happy, Calm, Unusual, Attention Carrying
Happy, Calm, Unusual, Attention Carrying. Farran House, Patricia and John were a big surprise for us and will stay in our thoughts and memory.
Something very special
I had the most memorable and fantastic weekend celebrating my 70th birthday with my family from Australia, England and Kilkenny. We enjoyed every moment in the beautifully restored Farran House. We roamed the gardens, enjoyed the views and the whole experience. Patricia and John have created something very special at Farran House and we were delighted to have the opportunity to spend time here
Farran House provided a perfect setting for the O'Brien clan re-union. The Family came from China, New York, San Diego, Limerick, Westport and Dublin. Wonderful Hospitality.
Great Location for touring Southern Ireland, Close to Blarney, Killarney and West Cork Coast.
