Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with six lovely Irish homes
Springfield House in Ireland
This fantastic five-bedroom home was originally built back in the 1860s and has since had a full restoration to return it to its former glory.
From the vaulted staircase that adds a great centrepiece to the period features you can spot throughout the home, there’s a lot to love here.
It’s also a very welcoming property that’s bursting with natural light to wake you up in the morning and inviting fireplaces to warm you up at night.
A Gothic style house in County Dublin
This 15-bedroom property is quite a sight to behold thanks to the original architect incorporating both northern and southern Gothic detailing throughout the intriguing mansion.
You can also spot a string of Venetian influences inside – especially on the staircase and window that form a focal point in the home as you enter.
A contemporary castle with its own underground lagoon
This coastal property, known as An Culu, sits on the edge of the Kenmare Estuary and offers some incredible views over the surrounding bay and off into the Caha Mountains.
Whether you look at the impressively maintained ‘castle’ style features like turrets and castellations, or the property grounds which include dense woodland and a classic drawbridge and moat – it’s certainly not the sort of property you see everyday.
A lakeside home for those who love the water
This four-bedroom property is called Long Lake House, and sits on the Iveragh Peninsula across some 13 acres of land.
If the sunset views from the property aren’t enough to convince you – nor the easy water access and pier that comes with the home – perhaps the interior design will do. Just some of the many luxury features across the inside of this home are open fireplaces, Blue Pearl granite flooring and an inviting library.
A magnificent private island to escape from it all
Extending to around 157 acres in total is Horse Island – an entirely private plot of land off the coast of West Cork that has been completely re-developed to be a modernised, residential private island which is totally self-sufficient.
The island is just a few minutes travel by boat to the mainland making it close enough for convenience and emergencies but far enough away for you to switch off and enjoy the peace and tranquility this listing offers.
Knockdrin Castle set across 1,000 acres of grounds
This 12-bedroom castle dates back to the 18th Century and really is one of the finest castellated country homes in Ireland – showcasing a Gothic Revival style that still looks breathtaking to this day.
Our favourite part about this luxury home is the way the natural light cascades down through the central glazed dome – a true centerpiece for a one-of-a-kind listing.
