History of Luttrellstown Castle Resort
Luttrellstown takes its name from the Luttrell family, who held the estate for more than 300 years until, 1811. The family line became extinct following the death of John Olmius Luttrell, 3rd Earl of Carhampton in 1829. Subsequently, a wealthy Dublin bookseller and businessman named Luke White purchased the estate for £180,000 from the Luttrells.
Later on, under the ownership of a member of the world-famous Guinness family, the final phase of the castle’s development took place between the 1910s and 1950s. During that time, areas of the interior, particularly the Van Stry Room and the Kentian Room were ingeniously re-modeled using Baroque and Georgian idioms which harmonize perfectly with the remainder of the interior scheme.
Over the years many notable celebrities and members of the royal family have spent some time at Luttrellstown Castle. The Grand Duke of Luxembourg, Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco, Fred Astaire, Douglas Fairbanks, Queen Magrethe II of Denmark, Paul Newman, and Ronald Reagan have all stayed in this stunning Irish castle. More recently, the world’s media descended on Luttrellstown Castle Resort in 1999 for the fairy-tale wedding of David and Victoria Beckham.
