The home of the Palladio Door Collection, Glin in Co. Limerick is where Tim and his family grew up. Now, a thriving company, Profile Developments has created local employment which is so important for the village of Glin and surrounding areas.
In the village of Glin, there are a variety of places to eat and drink, and also a range of accommodation options in the local area that include an award-winning B&B. There is a modern children’s playground located in the village park overlooking the estuary.
Elevated townlands in the parish offer scenic views of the Shannon estuary and beyond, locally known called the Scenic Route, the road that runs along the top of the hill that affords views of Clare to the north, Kerry to the west, Tipperary to the east and Cork to the south.
In 2009, the strong community spirit was nationally acknowledged when we were the proud winners of the All Ireland Pride of Place. Glin has many tourist attractions.
Glin Castle, home for 800 years of the FitzGerald family, hereditary knights of Glin, stands proudly in the middle of its 400 acres wooded demesne on the banks of the Shannon and is the gateway to the Southwest of Ireland and the Wild Atlantic Way. Catherine FitzGerald and her husband Dominic West (actor) have rescued her family home, Glin Castle, from being sold. Since Catherine and Dominic purchased the historical Irish castle, it has attracted visits from many famous icons, the most recent singer/ songwriter Taylor Swift was spotted enjoying a drink in the local pub O’Shaughnessy’s.
