Ardgillan Castle and Demesne  

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.

Rose Garden

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
      • Tea Rooms (wheelchair accessible) and Playground Shop

The main car park is located close to the demesne entrance at “Blackhills”, while a second car and

coach park, adjacent to the castle is open for castle visitors for

restricted use and disabled access.



The gardens are in three main parts, the formal Rose

Garden and the Potentilla collection to the west of the

castle, and the walled garden to the north-west which

contains herb, vegetable, fruit, and ornamental sections.


The state-of-the-art playground was opened in 2006 and

has over 30 pieces of play equipment to enjoy from cradle

swings for the very young to a large climbing space net for older children (under 12).
