A 15th century restored Irish castle

Posted on Sun, 19 Sep 2021 by KiM

This magical place is Kilcoe Castle, a 15th century castle located on Roaring Water Bay on the south western coast of Ireland. It was purchased by actor Jeremy Irons several years ago and took 6 years of painstaking renovations to get it to the state it is in today. It is absolutely beautiful, filled with art and treasures from the actor’s travels (carpets from Morocco, a Nepalese yoke, an old Roman-style threshing board, a fiddle he had made in Slovakia, a life-size antique wooden horse that he found in the Cotswolds…).

Every minute of six years was worth it. What a curated eclectic masterpiece! And, not an anchor
or boat wheel insite. I have actually bookmarked this curated masterdesign…..and have a whole new appreciation for the gentleman, Jeremy Irons.
Thank you Kim!

Love the unique & creative use of wicker in this home. (Along with everything else, of course.)

I would expect nothing less of such a creative man – the drama and attention detail with color and pattern everywhere is a delight for the eye.
