The Castle at Johnstown is a gem of gothic revival architecture.

It is surrounded by spectacular ornamental gardens designed by Daniel Robertson.

The gardens offer a range of beautiful sculptured walks, lake walks and a Victorian walled garden all currently open for visitors to enjoy.

The Irish Agricultural Museum is housed in the Johnstown Castle Estate’s farm courtyard buildings.

It displays one of the most comprehensive displays of farming and rural life in Ireland.

The museum, which has been in existence for over 40 years, now consists of 19 different exhibitions – everything from tractors to country kitchens.

The gardens at Johnstown Castle and the Irish Agricultural Museum are open all year round, 7 days a week.

The castle and gardens are maintained by Teagasc (Agriculture and Food Authority).

Please note that Johnstown Castle will open to the public in 2019.
