Be sure to check out the listing, as it may just be the only opportunity to live in House Tully without fear of the White Walkers.

Fans of the hit TV series "Game of Thrones" have likely dreamed of what life was like in Westeros.

The House Tully stronghold was filmed using Gosford Castle in Northern Ireland for scenes in season three of the HBO series.

There isn't any heating, but the property boasts 15 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, which means it could be a ideal hotel for summer getaways - and "Game of Thrones" fans.

Before being shown on Game of Thrones, Gosford Castle, built in the mid-1800s by the 2nd Earl of Gosford, Archibald Acheson, was used as a personal home, used by the military, and rented out as a hotel, CNET reports.

The starting price for the venue is £500,000 or $656,452 in U.S. dollars.

The real estate company did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but the listing describes Gosford as a "99-bed castle", and lists the price as "over £500,000".

The castle has an extensive history, as it was commandeered and used to accommodate troops during World War II.

It's the spot where Robb Stark executed Rickard Karstark, which then led to the massacre of the Starks at the Red Wedding. (That's $657,000, or AU$886,000.) Only a part of the castle is for sale, with the listing noting that the for-sale portion has been partially developed with an eye towards turning it into six luxury apartments.
