    ‘The Crown’ Star Dominic West Owns A Castle In Real Life. Here’s All About It

    ‘The Crown’ star Dominic West married Catherine Fitzgerald in 2010 in her ancestral home, Glin Castle. In 2019, the couple purchased the castle in order to retain family ownership when the property was up for sale. The 14th-century castle has 15 rooms and is surrounded by 400 acres of private woodland, making it a beautiful place for a countryside escape.

    Dominic first visited Glin for Catherine’s 21st birthday party, an experience he describes as ‘’romantically full of turmoil’’. Glin is a beacon of culture and employment in the local economy. The house is now open for private lettings and events, with regular literature and cooking retreats by local foodies. Know more about West’s Glin Castle.

    Does Dominic West Own A Castle In Real Life?

    Catherine FitzGerald and her husband Dominic West have rescued her family home, Glin Castle in Ireland, from being sold, and made it into a viable commercial concern. Dominic and Catherine have recently posed outside of their other home in the Cotswolds to declare their strong marriage after Dominic was pictured with Lily James.

    It is reported that Catherine has now temporarily relocated to the Irish castle, to be with her mother, Olga Fitzgerald. The inside of the castle is brimming with antiques and ornate details. The banquet-style dining room is vast enough to allow for social distancing. There are also two kitchens and a drawing room.

    West’s castle has 15 rooms, and each are styled up differently, with varying colour scheme, but all with the same traditional charm. The cosy sitting room features an eclectic gallery wall and roaring open fire – but the statement has to be the flamboyant pink furniture, stealing the show.

    The library room has a quirky feature, with a secret door leading to another room. The fun continues outside where the couple enjoy a croquet lawn, tennis court and hot tub. Catherine’s father, Desmond FitzGerald, was the last Knight of Glin, and Catherine was keen to keep the property in the family.
