Next St. Patrick’s Day, you could be pulling yourself the perfect pint of “black gold” at this picturesque Irish estate for sale near Dublin. Dating back to the 18th century, this castle, located in Roundwood, Ireland, was once the home of Oonagh Oranmore, one of the heiresses to the Guinness company’s stout fortune. In her heyday, Oranmore threw magnificent soirées on the property, hosting the likes of Angelica Huston, the Rolling Stones, artist Lucian Freud, and U2 frontman Bono.
Known as Luggala, the castle sits on 5,000 acres, and includes its own lake as well as original, 18th-century gardens. Inside, live like a king in 19,099 square feet of living space with 27 bedrooms and 18 baths.
The main house includes seven of those bedrooms, a dining room, entrance hall, three main reception rooms, and a library. A guest house includes four more bedrooms; the other 17 are distributed across seven other lodges and cottages that dot the estate.
The castle recently hit the market for 28 million euro (or $29.5 million). For more on its ins and outs, click here. Interested buyers can find contact information and further details here.
