Things to Know About Tullynally Castle

Though known as an Irish country house, Tullynally Castle is far from an ordinary residence.

The Gothic castle in County Westmeath boasts a staggering 120 rooms, and it has been in the aristocratic Pakenham family for over 300 years.

Although Tullynally was built in the 17th century, it was given a major remodel in the 18th century, when it took on the Gothic style it has today.

Since it is a private home, visits to the interior aren't available to the public. However, you can tour the extensive gardens that surround the castle.
