Welcome to Houses, Castles And Gardens Of Ireland

Living history for the curious visitor

You will be very welcome at these fine houses, castles and gardens throughout the island of Ireland. Learn about the rich tapestry of our built and landscape heritage, culture and traditions over many centuries. Discover early castle strongholds, tower houses, stately mansions and gardens that are of historic importance or leading the way in contemporary design.
Our website will help you to plan a wide variety of excursions for a family outing or a specialist group tour. Many of the properties make ideal locations for weddings: ceremonies, receptions and photography. Some backdrops and interiors will be well known to you from TV & Film: such as The Tudors, Becoming Jane, Vikings and The Spy who came in from the Cold.
Admission charges will apply and event programmes may affect the opening hours, so it’s well worth making a call to the property to be advised.
