Taylor Swift Rents Out a Castle For N22.8 Million
For many people around the world, it is only in their wildest dreams can they get to live in a remote Irish castle for the holidays.
One of such people is not Taylor Swift because she got to live out the fantasy over Christmas.
It is reported that the multiple award-winning singer and her beau Joe Alwyn spent a few days at the spectacular Glin Castle in County Limerick. The report which was published by “The Sun” has it that Swift spurged out about N22,844,430 (£50,000) for the getaway. The amount is equivalent to just over $63,000.
It is also reported that the couple maintained a very low profile during their time in Ireland and even stopped in town at O’Shaughnessy’s Traditional Pub. An alleged eyewitness to their date night at the pub told “The Sun” that it’s not unusual for celebrities to spend a few days at Glin Castle. Julia Roberts and Mick Jagger apparently have spent time there.
The castle itself is available to use for private functions and vacations, which is what Swift and Alwyn perhaps did.
The 800-year-old castle sits on 400 acres of land and includes 15 acres of gorgeous gardens. For anyone looking to rent out the castle, it comes with over 15 “enchanting ensuite bedrooms, grand hall, dining room, library, elegant light drawing room, and cosy TV sitting room, all with open fires.”
The castle posted photos on their Instagram page of the interior getting all ready for the Christmas holidays, which included a huge tree and what looks like boughs of holly around some pillars.
Alwyn posted a photo on his Instagram one day after Christmas and the background resembled a view from Glin Castle. He captioned it with two Christmas tree emojis, hinting even more at their private getaway. Swift liked the photo, too.
It would be recalled that we reported earlier that Swift and Alwyn were in New York City for New Year’s Eve and were seen strolling around the city. The couple walked around Manhattan’s West Village neighbourhood and looked cosy together in the cold weather.
Later that night, Alwyn and Swift went to a restaurant nearby Swift’s TriBeCa apartment. They were joined by the singer’s brother, Austin Swift, as well as Alwyn’s brothers, Thomas Alwyn and Patrick Alwyn.
