Castle & Garden Tours

Shankill Castle is a living museum in Ireland’s Ancient East. Wander through time and explore our unique heritage and culture on a guided tour around the Castle when you will learn about the history of the house as well as view the exquisite antique collection and its eclectic contents juxtaposed against vibrant contemporary art work.


Visitors can roam the extensive gardens, steal a few raspberries in the walled garden, visit the donkeys and get lost on a romantic woodland walk.

The castle and gardens are open every weekend during summer and at other times by appointment.

Saturday and Sunday at 3.30pm from April – September. €10 per person including the Garden walk.

Saturday and Sunday from 2-6pm April – September 2015. €5 per person.

We work with local national and international tour operators and individuals such as Carlow ToursTour Operator Ireland, My Ireland Tour and Agri Tours Ireland  in tailoring your visit.
