Estate, Museum & Gardens
Opened in summer 2019, Johnstown Castle Estate, Museum & Gardens is a significant addition for Irish tourism and Ireland’s Ancient East.
Johnstown Castle Estate, Museum & Gardens offers an abundance of activities for all ages. We recommend allowing a minimum of 2-3 hours to fully enjoy the site:
*Enjoy a guided tour of the restored 19th-century Castle and unique servants’ tunnel – the longest domestic servants’ tunnel in Ireland
*Take a look at the fascinating Irish Agricultural Museum which displays one of the most comprehensive exhibits of farming and rural life in Ireland
*Explore over 4km of the picturesque lake and ornamental garden walks – including the fully accessible new 1.5km lower lake walk, great for all members of the family including our dog friends!
*Take your children to the new woodland children’s play area beside the new lower lake walk.
*Relax with your picnic around the lakes and watch the peacocks strut by displaying their finery at the castle lakeside with its Gothic towers, waterfall and statues.
We advise you to pre-book your castle tour to avoid disappointment.
The Visitor Centre also features a retail area with speciality products and a comprehensive introduction to all on offer at Johnstown Castle Estate, Museum & Gardens.
There is ample free parking and a café which 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.
