CastleHyde, an 18th century Palladian Castle overlooking the river Blackwater in Co Cork, Ireland, is renowned for being one of the greatest restoration projects Ireland has ever seen. Originally the ancestral residence of Ireland’s first President Douglas Hyde, it is now home to dance legend Michael Flatley and his family. When Michael purchased the property in 1999, it was in a state of almost irreversible decay, but after 10 years of restoration, CastleHyde has been brought back to its former glory.
