Excerpt from The Danvers Papers: An Invention

The Castle stands at the head of the lough. It is a castle only by courtesy, being really a large substantial building, showing traces of the handiwork of various generations, but nothing older than the bastard Tudor of the early Stuart reigns. Within, however, it is a delightfully irregular house, rendered charming by Irish warmth and brightness, and teeming with old traditions, droll, fantastic, or terrible, though even the most frightful seem to lose their horror when told round the cheerful fireside of Sir Bernard and Lady Danvers.
