Glin was once famous as a salmon fishery. Glin Castle is the seat of the Knight of Glin, whose family (Fitzgerald) have had lands here for over 700 years. The castle is owned and occupied by the 29th Knight of Glin and is now a luxury hotel. The glorious Demesne is a formal garden featuring well-kept shrubs, blooming flowers and a fine vegetable garden used to grow vegetables prepared in the castle kitchen.
