Game of Thrones has proven to be a major money spinner for Northern Ireland with filming taking place in Belfast and at various other locations.

It has given rise to a boost in tourism as well as the income from the production itself and for fans who really cannot get enough, there is now an opportunity to own one of the key locations.

Riverrun Castle, which featured as the ancestral home of Catelyn Stark in Series Three of the show is known as Gosford Castle in real life and a large portion of it is up for sale with a starting asking price of £500,000 (€560,000).

Built in the mid-1800s by the 2nd Earl of Gosford, Archibald Acheson, Gosford Castle is a grade A listed building. It was designed by London architect Thomas Hopper and was occupied by the Earls of Gosford until 1921.

During the Second World War, the Castle was commandeered and used to accommodate troops and prisoners of war.

Following the war, the Achesons sold the Castle to the Ministry of Agriculture who established the 590-acre demesne as Gosford Forest Park which was later designated Northern Ireland’s first conservation forest in 1986.

The castle went back into military use during The Troubles before being run as a hotel from 1983 until development into apartments in recent years.

The portion of the Castle now being offered for sale includes the main keep area. It has been developed up to a point but the opportunity is to do so in creating up to six luxury apartments.

Who knows they may be of sufficient quality to tempt some of the cast now that filming on the final series wrapped up earlier this month.
