Magnificent historic mansion once owned by the Guinness family – take a look inside

Guinness family mansion up for sale

Take a look inside the magnificent and historic former Guinness family home, which sold for an indisclosed sum estimated to be in the region of more than €25 million

The great, great, great, grandson of Arthur Guinness, Garech Browne, sold the mansion in 2017, so he could spend more time with his wife in Singapore.

Luggala is a seven bedroom, five-bathroom mansion in Co Wicklow with 5,000 acres of land. As well as the mansion, there is also a guest house and five lodges as part of the sale.

The property hadd been in Browne’s family for three generations. His grandfather rented it before buying it as a wedding present for his daughter Oonagh.

The grounds of the mansion were used as the backdrop for the classic movie Braveheart and the TV series The Tudors.

It has also hosted some of the top stars in the world such as Michael Jackson, Bono and Mick Jagger.

In 2012, author Robert O’Byrne wrote a book – Luggala Days – which tells many stories and memories of the house where Browne and his brother grew up.

Mr Browne inherited the house in 1970. In 1996, he restored it to it’s original castle-like look.

Mr O’Byrne, a friend of the family, told the Wall Street Journal: “You go there for lunch and days later re-emerge blinking into the sunlight, not sure what happened to you but knowing you had a good time.”
