Great Gardens: Glin Castle

Nowness

 

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.
