Ardgillan Castle and Demesne is situated in North County Dublin on an elevated coastline between Balbriggan and Skerries, 20 miles north of Dublin City.
The demesne is well signposted off the M1. The park consists of 194 acres of rolling open grassland, mixed woodland and gardens, overlooking the Irish Sea with views of Mourne Mountains to the north and Lambay to the south-east. Ardgillan is a sanctuary for many species of animals, mammals and birds for which the wooded areas provide a safe retreat from surrounding agricultural land.
Today the demesne is a stunning visitor attraction with a range of facilities the public can avail of, including castle tours, theatre events, afternoon tea, children’s parties plus much more.
Access to the castle is by guided tour only. Tours are available on demand. Our team of tour guides are both experienced and friendly with a great knowledge and understanding of the castle and its family occupants, The Taylors.
Our head gardener will provide a unique and engaging tour of our Victorian walled gardens. Highlights include the Potentilla garden and alcove wall which is believed to have been a Famine relief project.
