Possible Disruptions to Castle Tours

We are so delighted that Ardgillan Castle will undergo long awaited renovations over the coming year. There may be disruptions to the Castle Tours, our Gift Shop and Tearooms during this time, so please check with us before visiting in case of any closures. We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Castle Tours


Due to the impact of the cost-of-living crisis we are delighted to offer free tours to all those over the age of 65 on the first Wednesday of each month. (ID must be shown at the admissions desk to avail of free entry)

 Castle tours are €5.00 per person.  Special family rate of €15.00 (2 adults and 2 children). Free for those over 65 (with ID).

Ardgillan Castle is open all year round offering visitors the opportunity to visit an 18th century country style house.
Self-guided tours are available at present. Our tours provide an amazing opportunity to experience history at first hand. Many periods of social history are brought to life with the focus firmly on the family who once lived in the castle. Visitors will get the chance to explore the castle and enjoy the same atmosphere that the Taylors experienced from 1738, when the castle was built right up to 1962, when it was eventually sold.

For more information on the Taylor family and Ardgillan Castle please visit the history section of our website.
