Of all the places in the world, Ireland was selected for a large amount of cinematography for The Pope's Exorcist.

Dromore castle was built around 1865-1870 in Pallaskenry, County Limerick, Ireland.

The castle was originally built to the design of EW Godwin for the third Earl of Limerick, Lord Glentworth.

It's said that Godwin researched medieval Irish buildings for Dromore and that he included a round tower to evoke the silhouette of the Rock of Cashel.

The castle became deroofed in the 1950s and has since not had any repair work on it.

The Gothic architecture was exactly what the film makers were looking for with the movie The Pope's Exorcist and a lot of outside shots combined with some studio shots bring this castle back to life as a lived in location.

There were other locations used for the movie also, Trinity College, Marley Park and many other locations around Dublin.

There is minimal information on the internet about Dromore castle so off to the library to collect a few reserved books to understand the history a bit more and to see if there were any tragic backstories that might lead to the almost expected haunting of a castle.
