Beatles once took acid and Michael Jackson hid in the sprawling mansion noted for fun, writes Barbara McCarthy
Last week, one of Wicklow's most distinguished residents put his home up for sale and a small part of whimsical, romantic Ireland died.
Luggala, the pearl in Wicklow's oyster and just 40km south of Dublin, will be sold to anyone with €28m to spare.
Its colourful custodian, the ponytailed Hon Garech a Brun, a Guinness heir who has lived in Luggala all his life, is moving out and taking his three-piece tweed suits and memories with him.
