This elegant Georgian House at the entrance to Youghal Harbour was built in 1752 on the grounds of the old Fransiscan Abbey which was sacked by the Cromwellian Army.
Avonmore House (house on the large river) was one of the first houses built outside the town wall of Youghal, and belonged to the Earls of Cork. The title of the house passed to the Duke of Devonshire in 1826 and has been in private hands since 1846.
