A potentially lost treasure of the all too rapidly vanishing Ireland of old is gradually and lovingly being restored to its former grandeur by it owner, Bonnie Vance, and the head of the Charleville Trust, Dudley Stewart, aided by a small group of dedicated volunteers. An incredible example of over-the-top Regency era flamboyance, the castle, to which William Morris, Lord Byron and Percy Shelley all made architectural contributions, Charleville Castle is amazingly unique. The extravagent plasterwork in the Ballroom alone makes the castle well worth a visit. Add to this several beautifully restored and furnished rooms, an extremely rare "flying" staircase and numerous ghost stories and Charleville Castle offers something for every taste!
