Great place to walk

Ardgillan Castle car park has a fabulous view out over Skerries harbour. Lovely place to walk, run, cycle or bring your dog for a walk. Make sure to visit the gardens to the left of the castle.

we arrived on sunday 27th oct having looked at the website we wanted to tour the inside of the castle, when we got there we had to park right at the end of the walkway, we trekked up to house and after serching for a member of staff were in formed that there were no tours that day because of a halloween thing going on, no where on web site did i see this info or they could have at least put a notice on the notice board in the car park informing people that there were no tours, we did consider going back on the monday but decided not to will not bother again!!

A lovely setting
Sep 2019
The walk from the upper parking lot is a nice little walk... there is a lower parking lot closer to the estate. The grounds were very pretty and house with all its hidden doors, and secret passages was fun. Worth a visit. But this is an estate, not a "castle" as you might think a castle.

Kids play park is good!
Sep 2019
The house itself isn't one of the better examples of historic building I've come across but it's worth a visit if you're passing by. Short tour round as much of the house isn't open to the public. They have a cafe but it's probably best avoided as they take an age to do anything. Best part is if you have kids go to the excellent play park, which you can use for free!

Great place to walk.
Jan 2019 • Friends
This is a great place to walk for all ages- different paths and walk ways from beginner to moderate. Dog friendly area to walk dog's in too. They also have a fairy theme going on around the woods.
Nice tea rooms when finished for a cuppa and chat.
Great playground for small children too.
