Relax by the castle lakeside with its Gothic towers, waterfall and statues and watch the peacocks strut by.

Visit the new experience at Johnstown Castle Estate, Gardens and Museum which offers visitors a ‘3 in 1’ attraction including the Gothic revival castle with adjoining servants’ tunnel (one of the longest in the country), the Irish Agricultural Museum with its 19 exhibitions exploring Irish rural life and the spectacular lakes, walled gardens and sculptures. This great 19th century castle in its beautiful setting was designed by the Victorian architect Daniel Robertson who is responsible for many projects in the southeast of Ireland including Powerscourt in Co. Wicklow.

The Peacock Tea Room is open throughout the year and is located within the museum building and provides great food in a warm and welcoming environment.

  • 200 varieties of trees and shrubs
