Real-life Riverrun castle from ‘Game of Thrones’ up for sale for $650,000
Owning a castle seems like a thing of fantasy.
For a “Game of Thrones” fan, owning Riverrun — former seat of House Tully but now occupied by House Frey — might seem like a dream come true.
If you’re a fan, you get it — otherwise just know it’s one of the castles from the hit HBO show.
And now it’s for sale. Castle owners are accepting bids of anything over $650,000.
It’s real name is Gosford Castle in County Armagh, Northern Ireland. “Game of Thrones” producers used the castle to film various scenes in the series.
The castle — listed with 15+ bedrooms and 10 bathrooms — was built in the mid-1800s by Archibald Acheson, the second Earl of Gosford.
It was designed in the Norman Revival style by London architect Thomas Hopper.
According to the listing, the castle was used during World War II to accommodate troops and as a prisoner of war camp.
In 1983, the castle was converted and used as a hotel. In 2006, the castle was purchased and underwent a $5.17 million renovation to convert the castle into 23 luxury apartments.
Sadly, the rooms are unfurnished, so you’ll have to provide your own throne.
