A patchwork of verdant fields blankets the hills of Northern Ireland, high above the country roadsides. Sunlight dapples through gray skies that turn a brilliant blue as the road bends and the breathtaking coastline appears. Nearby, in the heart of Ireland’s Lake District, is Crom Castle. The historic seat of the Earls of Earne for more than 350 years, it carefully safeguards history within its perimeter walls. The grounds, now parkland, invite visitors to picnic, walk throughout hazy meadows, and explore the noble surroundings.
