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

We are open 7 days a week all year, from 9am to 6pm (July and August) with last entry to the gardens 5pm. Café closes at 5.00pm. No pre-booking is required for entry to the Museum and 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.




Pre-booked Castle Tours run daily during summer months at 11am, 11:30am, 12pm, 1.30pm, 2pm and 3pm – depending on availability or events. The Irish Agricultural Museum, Gardens, Lake Walks & Playground are open 7 days as well as our visitor centre café and shop. No booking required to visit the Museum or Gardens (not including tour of the castle).

Our café offers a selection of sandwiches, salads and some hot food options. We are delighted that these are provided by local food producers and members of the Wexford Food Family. Plan your visit here.
