It doesn't look like much today - just ruins very much like those of the famine cottages that dot the Irish landscape. But, this was the birthplace of a man called "The Liberator", a man who advocated for Civil Rights for Catholics and worked with the 19th century British rulers in the struggle for Ireland's political autonomy.

This was the birthplace of a great man. It doesn't take much time to look it over - think of the life of this emancipator as you look over these time-worn stones.

If you're driving the Ring of Kerry in the anti clockwise direction, drive really slowly and just as you enter the town of Cahersiveen, you will see propped up ruins of a stone house in the middle of a small farm land. That will be Daniel O'Connell's birth place. THEN visit the Derrynane house which belonged to Daniel and his uncle during his life.

You might just see a ruin of a house but if you have an interest about irish history this ruin is a big thing.

the location is great. if you are driving the ring of kerry, you pass the house anyway but just when you enter Cahersiveen, drive slow and watch out or you easy miss it.

I was born in Cahirciveen ,and I still love going back every year.Here we have the birth place of Daniel O Connell.Our local Church is called after him.He was the man who gave a better life to Roman Catholics and introduced Catholic Emancipation in the house of Parlament.This site is well worth a visit,It is a pity that sites like these haven't been restored to their original Glory.
