If there was one Game of Thrones house that never had any luck, it was House Tully, who was pretty much all butchered at the Red Wedding. But if for whatever reason you still wave the trout banner — or you just want to live in Westeros — the castle at Riverrun is up for sale.
Gosford Castle in County Armagh, Northern Ireland is the on-screen home of House Tully and now part of it can be yours. Considered to be Northern Ireland’s largest castle, the Norman-revival designed dwelling was built in the 1800s for the second Earl of Gosford and was occupied by the Earls of Gosford until 1921; the Ministry of Agriculture purchased the castle afterwards, holding ownership until it was sold to a development company.
Gosford Castle Development Limited has divided the castle up into several sections and started auctioning them off piece by piece. One was sold last month, and now a new one is up for grabs. The 3,500-square-foot section has been converted into six luxury apartments: the Inner Bailey, the Great Hall, the Old Keep, the Dining Room House, the Library Wing, and the Round Tower, and each of those have several of their own apartments.
HBO mainly used Gosford Castle to film scenes that took place at Riverrun during season 3. If you’re a Thrones fan, you might recall the scene where Robb Stark beheaded one of his bannerman, Rickard Karstark, for treason. They also returned to film the siege of Riverrun, where Jaime Lannister helped the Frey armies take the castle from the remaining Tullys in season 6. Thankfully, you won’t have any blood on the grounds if you purchase the castle — HBO’s cleaned that up for you so all you’ll have is amazing new digs and bragging rights.
Bids start at £500,000, but if you can’t spare the change, there’s other things for Thrones fans to be excited about. HBO president Casey Bloys recently announced that the final season will be released in the first half of 2019, instead of midsummer as it has for the last few seasons. And filming on the upcoming prequel is rumored to begin filming, partially in the Isle of Skye.
