Ardgillan Castle And Demesne, Balbriggan Reviews - Write a Review

  • Love this place! You can go for a long or a short walk, with your dog, kids, a wheelchair,... There is parking on top of the hill and next to the castle (only for wheelchair users). You will also find a nice rose garden and a coffee shop (dog friendly) as well as a huge playground. The further you walk down the hill (behind the castle) the more secluded it gets. In the recent year a fairly trail was also added.

  • What a wonderful park. You have several walking routes and a great 5K cycling track, a large children's playground, benches, BBQ areas, the castle itself and the wonderful views down on to the Irish sea. It's a great place to walk the dog, go with family or just by yourself. Ample parking (during busy periods they open an overflow) and attentive park rangers.

  • Amazing place. Fun foor little one bit bigger and adults. Every corner brings surprise. I had there the best tomato and basil soup.

  • Very beautiful garden. Even during winter. The view is amazing.

  • Best playground arond the area. Lovely park one of our favourite. We just love it.
