We look forward to welcoming you to Johnstown Castle Estate, Museum & Gardens.

We are open 7 days a week, 9am to 5.30pm with last entry at 4.30pm. No pre-booking is required for entry to the Gardens.

Take a stroll in the stunning gardens, lake walks & woodlands or enjoy our woodland play area. Watch the peacocks strut by displaying their finery at the castle lakeside with its Gothic towers, waterfall and statues.

We recommend you allow a minimum of 3 hours for your visit to fully enjoy the site. There is ample free parking.
