Hollywood star Dominic West is to open Glin Castle as a boutique hotel.
The former star of ‘The Wire’ and his family were planning to sell the property, which has been on the market for €6.5 million, but have decided against it according to the Irish Independent.
Glin Castle, which sits in a 380-acre site, has been in Mr West’s wife’s family for over 700 years as his wife Catherine is the daughter of the last Knight of Glin, Desmond FitzGerald.
The title became extinct as he left no male heirs.
Mr West says he and his family will be heavily involved in the running of the hotel, and they hope to have it open next year.
