Huntington Castle, also known as Clonegal Castle, is a castle in Clonegal, County Carlow, Ireland. It has been plagued by ghosts of Druids in the fields and even in the castle. The structure was originally a “plantation castle” used for defensive purposes during the plantation of the area in the early 17th century.

The Esmonde family, laid out most of the gardens in the 17th century. This includes the French limes on the Avenue, the parterre or lawns to the side of the house, the fish ponds on either side of the centre walk through the wilderness and the majority of yew trees which comprise the Yew Walk. Huntington Castle was the setting for Stanley Kubrick’s film. Its basement has been the base of a religion, theFellowship of Isis since 1976.
