Ireland's Malahide Castle to Close for Renovations

Ireland's Malahide Castle is preparing for a royal sprucing. The noble estate, set on 250 acres of park land, will close its doors on October 31 for refurbishments and will reopen in 2012.

The home dates back to 1185 when the Talbot family moved in. Historic touch: The Talbots occupied the home until 1973. Talk about a blood line!

The house is furnished with period furniture and a collection of Irish portrait paintings.
