Educational Tours


At Ardgillan Castle we offer educational tours of the castle with one of our experienced guides.

The average educational tour to Ardgillan takes approximately 90minutes.

The children will learn about the history of the house and the Taylor family. They will also get the chance to hear about the people who lived here in Victorians times, including the servants. The upstairs/downstairs story of life in a big house is central to this theme. The group will then be given a short quiz of the castle where they can, in teams, explore the collection and learn about the many artefacts that are on display at Ardgillan.

Schools/groups are encouraged to bring their own packed lunch which can be enjoyed in any of the expansive picnic areas, or indoors if desired. Children’s packed lunches are available but must be booked in advance.


Schools/groups are welcome to explore the Victorian Walled Garden where they can see the many native native and unique species growing in the grounds. Groups can also avail of our state-of-the-art playground or enjoy a leisurely walk around the park.

Prices are from €5.00 per child (Minimum of 20 children)
