We look forward to welcoming you to Johnstown Castle Estate, Museum & Gardens which is cared for and managed by the Irish Heritage Trust, an independent not-for-profit organisation. Enjoy a tour of the restored 19thcentury Castle and unique servants’ tunnel or the fascinating Irish Agricultural Museum. Take a stroll in the stunning gardens, lake walks & woodlands or have a picnic around the picturesque lakes. Watch the peacocks strut by displaying their finery at the castle lakeside with its Gothic towers, waterfall and statues.
We are open all year round and recommend you allow 2-3 hours for your visit to fully enjoy the castle, agricultural museum, lake walks and ornamental gardens. Our guided castle tour is one hour (pre-booking is advised). The new visitor centre has indoor and outdoor seating including a café and shop. There is ample free parking and coaches are very welcome.
