For anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life, Clonakilty in West Cork has much to offer. Located minutes from this vibrant town is Dunowen House, a luxury 18th century private rental property. Surrounded by private coves and sandy beaches, Dunowen House offers guests the chance to totally escape and experience West Cork life.
As the former home of Noel Redding, bass guitarist with the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Dunowen House is a truly unique escape.
Unwind in one of six luxurious bedroom suites, relax in front of wood-burning stoves, enjoy the memorabilia & mementos of a colourful history spanning almost 250 years.
Originally built in 1771 by Captain George Sandes, Dunowen’s current owners Kela and Stephen Hodgins have been working with these historic buildings since 2013 to create a laid back luxury hideaway that connects with the stunning costal landscape and unique history.
Dunowen House has fantastic music credentials being the former home of Noel Redding, bass guitarist with the Jimi Hendrix Experience. For more than 30 years Noel lived here, where he entertained music legends throughout the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.
To honour this rock and roll heritage the house has been decorated roll memorabilia linked to Noel Redding and Jimi Hendrix, specifically original concert posters, vintage magazines and music.
When you stay, the house is yours exclusively; perfect for intimate weddings of up to 30 guests, family reunions, group holidays, celebrations and events. Dunowen House provides the comforts of a luxury small hotel and the privacy of a country estate – all to yourself.
