Glin Castle

Glin Castle

The present Glin Castle which succeeds the medieval ruin in the village of Glin was built in the late 18th centaury with entertaining in mind.

The entrance hall with a screen of Corinthian pillars has a superb neo-classical plaster ceiling and the enfilade of reception rooms are filled with a unique collection of Irish 18th centaury mahogany furniture. Family portraits and Irish pictures line the walls, and the library bookcase has a secret door leading to the hall and the very rare flying staircase.
