Set in beautiful countryside at the foot of the Blackstairs Mountains, the Castle is the ancient home of the Durdin-Robertsons and is presently lived in by four generations of the family. The latest generation have very recently relocated from London and are keen to revitalise Huntington Castle with innovative ideas and initiatives.
“It’s all about sharing this wonderful building with people who will appreciate its character and history” says Clare Durdin-Robertson who until recently lived in Battersea with her husband Alexander.
“We want to open up the Castle,” adds Alexander “whether it’s a wedding party or a painting course, we want people to come and enjoy themselves, where they can be sure of a warm welcome as well as a totally unique experience.”
Huntington is only 60 miles from Dublin, yet it feels like a different world. The Castle has been lovingly restored and boasts a stunning bridal suite as well as a self- catering flat – perfect for the bride and her entourage to prepare for the big day.
The venue is licensed to hold marriages on the premises. But for couples wanting a church service, there are two churches within a mile.
The beautiful grounds are perfect for photographs and a 17th Century barn theatre in the courtyard makes a wonderfully stylish dining experience for guests, surrounded by history and heritage.
