Dream Castle for Sale

Glin Castle

Glin Castle is a romantic castellated mansion enjoying a glorious setting within some 380 acres of mature parkland and benefiting from being superbly positioned overlooking the Shannon estuary, on the periphery of attractive Glin village and less than 1 hour’s drive of Limerick city centre and Shannon International airport.

This is one of Ireland’s most historic properties Glin Castle has been in the FitzGerald family, hereditary Knights of Glin, for over 700 years. The romantic and fairytale title of the Knight of Glin dates back to the early 13th Century. The title is an anomaly, akin to Irish chieftainships, and illustrates the Gaelicization of a powerful Norman family. In spite of the usual series of massacres, attainders, and confiscations, the Knights of the Glen, or Valley, have somehow managed to retain their lands at Glin for over seven centuries.
