Brief History of Gosford
The castle was built in the mid-1800s by Count Archibald Acheson and designed by London architect Thomas Hopper in the Norman style of revival. Acheson lived there until 1921. The largest castle of Ulster was then used as a military base and a prisoner of war camp during World War II. After that, it was bought by the Ministry of Agriculture and militarized again in the 1970s. After 1983, there was a hotel in the fortress.
The castle Gosford is located in the Irish county of Armagh. The building is decorated with wide stone stairs, bas-reliefs, and vaulted ceilings. Part of the dwelling for sale includes six spacious apartments with large fireplaces and gardens with live plants on the roof. The area of each apartment is 47 square meter.
At the end of 2006, the ancient building was acquired by the management company Gosford Castle Development Limited, which restored the castle, retaining its original appearance. It has divided it into six apartments with their names: Courtyard, Great Hall, Old Fortress, Dining Hall, Library Wing, and Round Tower.
“Game of Thrones”
The last few years here was filmed “Game of Thrones” and therefore the castle is very popular among tourists. One of the most famous scenes filmed near the walls of the fortress was the execution of Lord Richard Karstark by Robb Stark.
