Johnstown Castle Garden has fifty acres of attractive grounds. The famous architect Daniel Robertson designed both Johnstown Castle gardens and Powerscourt gardens. The beautiful 19th century Johnstown Castle is located within fifty acres of attractive grounds and only a 10 minute drive from Whitford House hotel.

Take a Stroll through the wooded grounds with over two hundred different kinds of trees and shrubs or relax by the castle lakeside with Gothic towers and waterfalls. Wander along the Castle lake terrace that’s lined with statues by the shimmering Garden Lake. Both lakes are home to a wide range of waterfowl - mute swans, water hens, little grebes and heron.

It hosts an old world former farmyard that is now the widespread and well laid out Irish Agricultural Museum. In July and August a small café here provides teas coffees and snacks for visitors. If you pass through the Devil's Gateway into the walled ornamental gardens and hothouses a hidden heaven provides a stunning, vibrant array of blossoming plant life.

The hollow Italian Garden contains a sheltered picnic area where an individual can sit and watch the colorful peacocks strut by. Another appeal is the ruin of a medieval tower house called Rathlannon Castle. Visitors please note that unfortunately Johnstown Castle itself is not open to the public but the grounds on their own are definitely an experience...
