Regarded as one of the finest examples of an Irish castle and set within 101 hectares of mature wood land and parkland, Tulira Castle in Ardrahan is being offered for sale by private treaty by Dublin real estate firm Ganly Walters.
One enters Tulira Castle through impressive entrance gates which were brought from Dunsandle House in Kiltullagh in 1950. The castle is approached by a picturesque three-quarter-mile avenue, lined with 95 lime trees.
The castle comprises three main buildings, a medieval tower, courtyard buildings and the Victorian castle. The original structure, a medieval tower house, rests on 12th century foundations. A castellated house was added to the tower in 1882 by Edward Martyn, a leading figure in the Irish literary and artistic revival. A large stone set over the main castle door dates the Victorian addition to 1882.
Tulira Castle has a number of additional houses, including a gate lodge, stable house, butler’s apartment and further staff apartments. There are also extensive original staff quarters in the courtyard that could be converted to further accommodation if required.
Less than 40 minutes’ drive from Galway City, Tulira is in a tranquil location, yet close to all amenities. There is a wide selection of schools in the area, which include a number of local primary and secondary schools. Local shopping needs can be catered for at Ardrahan village, which offers everyday amenities.
The property comes with a price of €6,500,000.
