There’s been a castle on this site since the 12th century, but this one dates from the 1860s. It was built by the 3rd Marquis of Donegall. It went wildly over budget and, as the Marquis’ fortunes had changed, nearly didn’t get finished at all today it’s a working castle, earning its keep with wedding receptions, conferences, an antique store, and an adventure playground. At the visitors center, you can find out all about the history of the Castle Hill site.
