I want to live in… Ireland
One of Ireland’s most historic properties, Glin Castle in Limerick was the ancestral home of the FitzGerald family, hereditary Knights of Glin, for over seven centuries. Situated within 380 acres of mature parkland, the castle overlooks the Shannon estuary and is less than an hour’s drive from the international airport. Inside, there are 21 bedrooms and numerous reception areas, many boasting Corinthian columns and neoclassical ceilings, and all featuring notable collections of Irish furniture and paintings which are being sold with the estate. The property, which includes a dairy farm and a pair of separate lodges, is on the market for £4 642 475 (approximately R98,5 million) with Christie’s International Real Estate (property ID: 1503251045355101).
