Kevin McCloud meets actor Sean Simons, who has bought the ruins of Cloontykilla Castle in Co Roscommon in the Republic of Ireland with a view to using them to create a spectacular mock 16th-century home. However, the outlandish plans – including Jacuzzis in the battlements and water-spouting gargoyles – have Kevin worried the project could become a garish nightmare, and his scepticism increases when he realises Sean has not consulted an architect. Disaster seems to be looming as the contractors grow frustrated and planning regulations are ignored, but somehow things begin to slowly take shape – until a national economic crisis plunges everything into chaos.
