Tetrarch Acquires Howth Castle & Desmesne

Tetrarch Capital's acquisition of Howth Castle and Demesne

On 28 May 2019 Tetrarch Capital completed its acquisition of Howth Castle and Demesne from the Estate’s long-term owners, the Gaisford-St Lawrence family.

Tetrarch is now working on a masterplan for the entire Demesne, which is likely to include, amongst other elements, plans for a luxury hotel on the site of the existing Deer Park Hotel building, a championship golf course on lands currently occupied by the Deer Park Golf Courses, a new leisure centre, retail elements and significant sports and recreational amenities and facilities, all with strong access and linkages to Howth Village. 

Howth Castle & Demesne had been owned by the Gaisford-St Lawrence family for over 840 years. In addition to the stunning Howth Castle, the land encompasses over 530 acres of walled gardens, parkland, woodland, and world-renowned Rhododendron Gardens. The Estate has sweeping views over Dublin Bay, Howth Harbour, the Irish Sea, and Ireland’s Eye - which has been included within the sale. Tetrarch are committed to retaining the natural beauty of the entire estate.

All staff currently working at Howth Castle & Desmesne will continue to be employed under Tetrarch’s ownership of the Estate in accordance with their existing terms and conditions.
