The Irish Bayou Castle in New Orleans is looking for a new owner. At least according to their Facebook Page, where they’ve announced that this “investor’s dream” can be purchased for half a million dollars.
“The Castle is for sale! It includes the fishing camp across the street and an empty lot. $500k Contact Scott Johnston with serious inquiries only”, they wrote.
They also shared a beautiful video of the property.
Locals and tourists have been curious about this unusual construction that can be seen clearly from Interstate 10, also known as the “Fisherman’s Castle.” It’s had numerous owners since it was built in 1981, inspired by 14th-century castles in Europe.
The construction has survived many hurricanes, including Katrina, when it had to undergo restoration after being flooded with 12 feet of water. In the last years, it has been rented for events and wedding photoshoots.
