What do we say to purchasing this Game of Thrones castle?

Apparently — not today. 

This Game of Thrones castle in Northern Ireland, that served as Riverrun in the iconic series, has just sold for less than the price of a single episode of GoT, which was reported by Entertainment Weekly to be around $15 million per episode — with yesterday’s Battle of Winterfell likely costing more than that.

A portion of the Northern Ireland Gosford Castle, also known as the childhood home of Catelyn Stark, sold for around $869,000 CAD.

It was built in the mid-1800s by the second Earl of Gosford, Archibald Acheson, and was designed in the Norman Revival style by London architect Thomas Hopper, according to the Maison Real Estate listing.

The 15-bedroom castle has room names fit for any fan of Westeros, including the Inner Bailey, the Great Hall, the Old Keep, the Dining Room House, the Library Wing, and the Round Tower.

If it were up to us, however, we would have gifted this castle, and the entirety of the Seven Kingdoms to Arya after Episode 3 of the final season.

Alas, a girl has no name, and evidently — no Ireland castle, either.
