Irish Bayou is a community along a body of water by the same name on the edge of the Bayou Sauvage National Wildlife Refuge. Most people heading to the bayou from New Orleans have seen the small castle standing out from the rest of the homes in the area facing the interstate. The castle, named “La Chateau Villemarette” after its maker French homebuilder Simon Villemarette, was built in 1981 and has stood tall ever since. The new owners chose the word woe to show sorrow for the other home owners in the area, nearly all of whom had their homes swept away during the Katrina disaster.
