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.

Eccentric, quirky, unique, stylish, different, a home-from-home...

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.


Guest accommodation at Walton Court is centred on two adjoining courtyards, with a total of 12 self-catering cottages, mews houses, and one apartment in the old coach house.

The fortified lower courtyard, one of the oldest parts of the property dating from 1642, has been carefully restored to create four individual characterful self-catering cottages with exposed stone walls and beams, with modern facilities such as power showers and fitted kitchens, and one ground floor apartment in the old coach house.

The upper Oysterhaven Harbour courtyard, formerly the farmyard, has seven superbly appointed modern mews houses providing spacious accommodation. All have balconies and some have sea views.

Our award winning Courtyard Cafe, exercise pool and guest honesty bar are in the old courtyard.

Walton Court has won my heart, amazing food, stunning location, such lovely and friendly staff, beautiful, quaint buildings, pet friendly and the hospitality is first class! It is like something from a film...

weddings & events

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

There are not enough words to express how beautiful, unique and magical Walton Court was for the biggest day of our lives. From the gourmet, homemade food to the fabulous small bar and the exemplary service to the stunning views and venue this place was a dream come true...

courtyard café

In our award winning Courtyard Café coffee, tea, home made cakes, pastries and scones are served, with a lunch menu from 12 noon until 4pm using fresh locally sourced ingredients and organic produce from our own gardens and orchards. We bake fresh bread every morning for our cottage and apartment residents.

One of the most memorable lunches that I have ever had. It is beyond beautiful. Sitting on the terrace, in the sunshine, it was simply blissful...
