Ballylickey, home of the franco-Irish Graves family for four generations, lies hidden among the rugged inlets of majestic Bantry Bay. This secluded Manor House has the ambience of a beautiful family home, cherished and nurtured over the centuries.

Visited over the years on many occasions by the poet Robert Graves, an uncle of the present owners. Ballylickey became a haven for writers, artists and musicians.
