Description

This masterpiece, dating back to 1845 is one of only seven original tower house castles in Dalkey. It offers the scale and atmosphere of a grand country house in the centre of the village, which is a rare combination. From the moment you enter the property you feel like you have been cast back to a bygone era - sweeping gravelled driveway, magnificent vaulted high ceilings, beautiful sash windows, magnificent fireplaces and large reception rooms. There is a magnifcient formal dining/ drawing room with beautiful solid oak floors and a feature fireplace further complimented with a large Hamptons style orangery off with terrace, capturing the afternoon and evening sunlight.

An extensive renovation project was undertaken on the castle a number of years ago with no expense spared. Only the very best materials, fittings and craftsmen were used throughout the renovation on the property. The house is further enhanced by the professionally landscaped gardens, designed by Dermot Gavin.
