A Castle With A Catch

Romantic island in Ireland complete with its own castle for sale for just £80,000; there is, of course, a catch

 

A 0.54 acre island at the southeastern end of Lough Key, near Boyle in County Roscommon is to be sold this December. A castle was built there first in the 12th century and though that was eventually burnt to the ground after being struck by a bolt of lightning, about 200 years ago a “folly house” was constructed in its place by an English family named the Kings.

 

Once again now a ruin, this Irish National Monument is described as being in a “perilous state” but could potentially be restored to create what could be the most spectacular holiday home imaginable.

 

Associated with the Legend of Una Bhan – the tragic story of a girl who fell in love with the son of the clan chief owner of the island – McDermott’s Island also featured in the works of W. B. Yeats and was visited by Sir Bob Geldoff when he made a BBC film titled A Fanatic Heart about the Irish poet in 2016. It was previously used for the Sky One sitcom Moone Boy starring Steve Coogan and Johnny Vegas in 2014.

 

Offered with a guide of £79,000 ($102,000, €90,000 or درهم373,000), bidding opens on 7th December and closes on the 13th December though BidX1. Grand Designs loving sorts will no doubt be queuing up.
