Located west of the N20 between Newtwopothouse and Mallow, Ballygiblin is a property that's steeped in history.
The house was formerly part of the 20,000ac Ballygiblin demesne that was the seat of the Beecher/Becher family who came to Ireland in the time of Elizabeth I.
Sir Henry Becher, who was aide-de-camp to King William III, built the castellated mansion now in ruins.
