    The castle is presumed to have been built in the late 15th century (approximately 1480).

    The Castle would have been probably used as a ” guest castle by the Burke Family, one of the ancient tribes of the city of Galway.

    The Castle measures 3,400 sq ft approx and is offered for sale including all furniture, fixtures and fittings, curtains, drapes, window treatments, beds, tables, chairs, delph, right down to the last candlestick.

    The Castle rests on about half an acre of land, surrounded by low walls and hedges: with a gated entrance.

    Asking price: €495,000 :wtf: I would have thought a castle would cost more than that.

    I'm guessing the heating and plumbing systems need updating, and maybe a new roof.

    Looks like you could fit a hell of a lot of blind kittens in there.

    This is a gorgeous castle. My cousin's wife was the nanny for the family who owns the castle and still lives in the part of the castle you don't see on TV.

    Sound like an offer that Ralphie Boy couldn't refuse.

    I don't want. It doesn't come with a moat.

    Didn't know there was a castle in Beverly. This one is in Wayne Ill. Way out north west on Army Trail road. I'm looking for the Cancer Treatment Centers of America commercial with the Wayne Country Store that is in the same neighborhood.

    Oh, ok, good. I thought I was losing it, cuz it doesn't look like the one in Beverly. I pass it every time I go to my school in Roseland. I'll be seeing it tomorrow. :dancin2:
