Dominic West and wife ‘flee UK to hole up in Irish castle’ after cosy Lily snaps

Dominic West and his wife Catherine Fitzgerald have left the UK and headed to a castle in Ireland, according to reports.

Yesterday the Brit actor, 50 told how he and Catherine were still an item after they kissed outside their Wiltshire home at a photocall and told press their marriage is "strong".

They've now jetted off to Ireland with their four kids to spend time at Glin Castle in Limerick, which has been in Catherine's family for generations and is where they tied the knot in 2010.

It is believed Dominic and Catherine plan to spend the upcoming half term break at the castle with their kids so they can enjoy time out of the spotlight, Mail Online reports.

Catherine's father was the 29th and final Knight of Glin and she grew up at the castle.

After his death her mother Olda decided to sell the castle so her daughter and Dom bought it so it could be kept in the family

The historic building is now a hotel and wedding venue, with part of it used as the family's residence.

Dominic and Catherine married at the castle in 2010 and have four kids together, daughter Dora, 13, son Senan, 12, son Francis, 11, and Christabel, seven.
