Dominic and wife Catherine now own their former wedding venue

Rachel Avery

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. We take a look at its grand interiors…

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.

Each of the 15 rooms are styled up differently, with varying colour schemes, 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.

It is thought 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.
