WELCOME to our Irish Georgian home

A magical and special private estate which has witnessed and survived three centuries of  history and intrigue, Walton Court now offers a stylish mix of old and new, preserving the eccentricity and atmosphere so loved by families, guests and friends over the years, but now with a sprinkling of modern creature comforts.

Situated on idyllic Oysterhaven Bay, six miles from Kinsale and only 20 minutes from Cork International Airport, Walton Court provides the perfect location for private events, family re-unions, small intimate weddings or simply a relaxing holiday retreat.

Four  self-catering cottages and two suites in the restored stable courtyard and seven luxury duplex apartments in our adjoining Oysterhaven Harbour courtyard provide exclusive and characterful accommodation for up to 40 guests with a spa pool,  courtyard cafe, conference/meeting room, and above all a relaxed and special privacy.

For weddings ,events and special occasions we provide a complete organisation and management service on an "exclusive private venue" basis, ensuring our guests a relaxed atmosphere and complete privacy in a wonderful setting.

Private dining and catering by prior arrangement, using fresh locally sourced ingredients and organic produce from our own gardens and orchards.
