Here's a sign of a slumping real estate market, even historic castles in Ireland are getting the price chop. A listing for Kinnitty Castle in Offaly, Ireland touts its $9 million price cut. The castle's historic roots date back to the 10th century. it is located on an ancient druidic ceremonial ground and the castle went through several different building stages. It was burned down in 1922 but rebuilt in 1928. It was sold to The State in 1951 but then the Ryan family bought it in 1994 and turned it into a hotel. Kinnitty Castle has been restored with three reception rooms, grand drawing room, large library and 37 bedrooms. It has been used for weddings and events (over 1400 couples have married here in the past 14 years) but could also be converted back into a private residence. It is being sold fully furnished. The 61 acre grounds include gardens, stables, paddocks forests and a river. Yours for $18 million.
