“I think these places nearly talk to the owner,” Irish actor Sean Simon says during a twilight tour of the grounds of his beloved Cloontykilla Castle overlooking the eastern shore of Lough Key in Co Roscommon.

It was in these pristine, ancient woods adjoining the Lough Key Forest Park where at seven year’s old he was first mesmerised by the sight of the former hunting lodge built around 1839 to resemble a medieval castle.
