Castlegrove – A Hidden Wonder

Ireland is known for its lush, green landscapes but some of its most priceless gems are reserved for only the most determined. On a recent trip home, a friend led us to a remote spot in the forests of Tuam where he then unveiled an epic spectacle – a magical castle estate, once a stately mansion and now a skeleton overrun with vines and trees. Formerly home to a prominent family, it was built deep in the woods as a secondary estate. Eventually it burned down during the Troubles of 1922, but so much heart and soul remains in the sacred space.

We knew it was the perfect setting for our famous Irish musician friends Ronan Regan and Irene Guckian’s next project, so we trooped back soon after for these unique images, pausing for breaks with wine and song. It was one of our most enchanting photoshoots ever.

About Colin McGuire You know that friend who always has a camera in his hand and can’t stop taking pictures? Well, that’s me! For myself I really enjoy shooting street portraits and streetscapes. And for my clients I just love creating beautiful, captivating moments, full of authentic mood and emotion. I’m based in the Midwest but I shoot all over the US and world. I’m comfortable with productions of all sizes from available-light environmental portraits to full on largescale lifestyle shoots. When I’m not taking pictures I love racing fast cars, listening to loud music, watching sci-fi movies and making bad jokes. But usually I’m taking pictures. Ready for a photo adventure? Let’s chat!
