Huntington Castle was built in 1625 as a garrison on the strategically important Wexford to Dublin route. After 50 years the soldiers moved out and the family began to convert it into a family home. Many generations of the family subsequently added various extensions and details making it a truly unique and interesting building. In the 1970’s the basement was converted into a temple to the Egyptian Goddess Isis and the family continue to renovate and restore the castle.
The guided tour takes approximately 40 minutes and brings the history and stories of the castle and its occupants to life. It takes in the living quarters and formal rooms of the castle, as well as the Temple of the Goddess in the basement.
