Gosford Castle located on the outskirts of Armagh City, County Armagh was constructed in the early 19th century specifically between 1819 and 1825. The castle was built for Archibald Acheson, the 2nd Earl of Gosford, who was a prominent figure in British and Irish politics. The designed was by renowned architect Thomas Hopper who was known for his Gothic Revival style and the castle is a prime example of the Gothic Revival movement that was popular during the 19th century, characterized by its battlements, turrets, and large windows.

In the early 20th century during the Second World War the castle was requisitioned by the military and was used to house troops. In most recent years the castle gained international fame when parts of it were used as a filming location for the popular television series "Game of Thrones." It featured as Riverrun, the ancestral home of House Tully.
