PICS: Check out this Kerry castle that has just been sold for €4.5 million

Rory Cashin

In case you’re wondering “Does it have a pool built into an underground cave?”, then answer is yes, it does have a pool built into an underground cave.

One of the biggest home buys for 2020 in all of Ireland, Saville have confirmed that the An Culu castle in Kerry has been sold for a whopping €4.5 million.

To be fair, yes, that amount sounds like A LOT, but they are buying an actual CASTLE, so… There’s that.

The 9,000 square foot property is on 4.5 acres of land, overlooking the Kenmare Bay and is located in the middle of the Coillte forest lands.

The folks at Savills described the property as follows:

“Modern luxuries such as a leisure basement with heated swimming pool, steam room and sauna, a lift serving all floors, full Bose sound system throughout and an extensive gas fired central heating system all remind you of its actual age.

“The extensive use of material in silk padded walls, bed canopies and sumptuous drapes and curtains certainly portray the historic theme to the building, together with extensive use of cut stone fireplaces and oak and cherrywood panelling and carpentry throughout.

“The octangular conservatory has superb views of the bay and over the purpose built harbour with deep water quay and floating marina. The outgoing custodians certainly had an excellent eye for detail and their wide-ranging knowledge of building and construction is evident throughout this project.

“The lucky new owner plans to spend a large part of the year at An Culu where he plans to entertain overseas guests and business associates as well as being able to appreciate some down time in this luxurious haven.”

Dear New Owners,

If you ever feel like inviting some of us to your luxurious castle parties in the not-too-distant future, let us go ahead and RSVP “Yes” right now.

Yours Sincerely,

The Lovin Team.
