This light-hearted romance, released by Realart, stars Constance Binney. When her father is killed during a fox hunt, Lady Noreen of Kildoran (Binney) finds herself saddled with debts and an ancient, run-down castle. The only way she can think of raising money is to rent the place out to Terrence O'Brien (Tom Carrigan), an American who is visiting Ireland . She pretends to be a maid, and tells O'Brien that her mistress is in France. O'Brien shows his American resourcefulness by playing handyman and fixing up the castle. A romance blooms between O'Brien and Noreen, hampered on her end by Ephraim Roach (Malcolm Bradley), who wants his son Desmond (Arthur Housman) to marry her, and on O'Brien's end by Leila Osborne (Ellen Cassidy), who has designs on him. When Leila and her brother Robert (Jed Prouty) come to visit, Noreen makes things as uncomfortable for them as possible. O'Brien, meanwhile, figures out that the Roaches only want Noreen's castle, and he makes short work of them. With all obstacles out of the way, the two happily unite.
