In 2015, the Irish Heritage Trust has partnered with Teagasc and the Irish Agricultural Museum to undertake conservation work and develop a new and exciting ‘3in1’ visitor experience at Johnstown Castle Estate, Museum & Gardens.

The Castle at Johnstown is a gem of gothic revival architecture and opened to the public for tours for the first time in summer 2019.  It is surrounded by spectacular ornamental grounds designed by Daniel Robertson. The gardens offer a range of beautiful sculptured walks, lake walks and a Victorian walled garden which are all currently open for visitors to enjoy. The Irish Agricultural Museum is housed in the former estate’s farm buildings and displays one of the most comprehensive displays of farming and rural life in Ireland.
