Looks opulent: Can you guess this place?

DSC00748

Picture captures expensive chandeliers, luxurious furniture, golden colored plating on the wall corners and of course beautiful carpets. Can you guess where did I take this picture? Here are a few hints:

  1. This place is in a beautiful city with a river flowing through the center.
  2. This English speaking country has been recently in the news for two important unrelated reasons.

Let us see who can guess first!

(Update:- At the time of this update, Lord Mani, Rama, Kavita and Harman have correctly identified the picture being part of Dublin Castle correctly. See my next post here.)

  1. Absolutely no idea. But if I were to take a wild guess from your clues, I would say some government official residence in London, England.

    The decor is quite similar to the Red Room in the White House!
