Glin Castle

Glin Castle, seat of the FitzGerald family, hereditary Knights of Glin, looks out over the estuary of the River Shannon, Ireland’s longest river, to the hills of County Clare. Nearby is Glin village, a charming hamlet near the border between County Limerick and the neighbouring ‘Kingdom’ of County Kerry. The Glin demesne makes a fine sight from boats upon the river, and especially from ships passing upstream on their way to Limerick and Foynes, with the castle and its outbuilding surrounded by trees and gardens, and encircled by a band of wooded hills.
