Artist's Description

Four hundred years ago Gawn Rowan Hamilton’s ancestor James Hamilton arrived in Co Down and settled in Killyleagh Castle.
When Lt Col Denys Rowan Hamilton handed over the keys of Killyleagh Castle to his son five years ago, he reassured him that he mustn’t let the property become a millstone around his neck and that, if it ever became too great a burden, he could sell it. Then, on his way out the door, he reminded him gently that the castle had been in the family for 400 years.
“It was a bittersweet moment,” Gawn Rowan Hamilton ponders, sitting in a cosy but strikingly high-ceilinged room in the oldest inhabited castle in Ireland.
Killyleagh Castle

The Baron of Killyleagh,is Prince Andrew, who regularly visits the village.

Origonally a Norman fortified house of the usual square no nonsense defensive blockhouse, it has been extensivly added to by successive generations .. hence its totally out of balance presentation, giving it a Loire Vallely/Scottish Baronial /fairy tale,Blackforest look.

Killyleagh Castle
Killyleagh has many famous sons including Sir Hans Sloane.. the inventor of Drinking Chocolate and lots more!
