Tour the site where Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, and Clark Gable (among others) spent their vacations. Take in views of the mountains, lakes, and forests while exploring the grounds. Stop by the visitor center for more information on the castle and gardens, which were given to Ireland in 1981. Make your Letterkenny itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.
