CASTLE ESTATES ARE always impressive but rarely are they filled with modern luxuries like a steam room, a sauna, underground heating, Swarovski door handles and Waterford Crystal chandeliers.

Overlooking the River Suir and built on 250 acres, Rocketts Castle Estate includes two tennis courts, an equestrian centre, a helipad, fishing lodge, children’s playground and dedicated kennels.

It’s on sale for €6 million.

Built around 1863, the castle has recently undergone a full renovation and redecoration while maintaining many of its original features, such as cornicing, ceiling roses, sash and casement windows and marble fireplaces.
