Welcome to Glin Castle, Ireland
About the Garden
Tucked away along the south-western Irish coast in County Limerick lies Glin Castle, an over-700-year-old property that has only ever been occupied by a single family-the FitzGeralds.
Built as the home of the Knight of Glin-otherwise known as the Black Knight, a hereditary once-noble position-the historic property is now overseen by the keen eye of Catherine FitzGerald, a London-based landscape architect who has returned the castle gardens to their former glory.
Here, the family invite London-based director Stella Scott, known for her work for British Vogue, Gucci and Tate, for a tour of the green windswept grounds.
