Genealogy research by Mark Humphrys,
Howth Castle was originally built 1464 (would be at succession of 2nd Baron Howth).
Howth Castle is
still in the family (through female line)
after 800 years,
making this possibly the oldest family home in Ireland.
The castle is not open to the public, but the grounds are.
The castle is quite an extended complex of interlinked buildings, of different ages, on the way in to Deer Park Hotel and golf course.

I have spent a great deal of time and money on this research. Research involves travel and many expenses.
Some research "things to do" are not done for years, because I do not have the money to do them.
