  • Superb place to visit, everything for all ages,abilities and interests. Fantastically put together. Leave lots of time for you visit...perhaps all day

  • We were blessed with a beautiful day so enjoyed walking in the grounds visiting the museum and exhibition , shop and cafe. Best scones I've had in Wexford county . Be lovely when the castle us open for viewing too.

  • Great museum. Lots to see and learn including old agricultural machinery and how it was used and developed and the history of the potato famine. Really interesting. Recommended.

  • Fantastic place to visit, situated on the grounds of Johnstown Castle. Features a remarkable collection of restored farming equipment from bygone years as we well as workshops and exhibitions. There's a Coffee Shop and of course, not forgetting to mention the freeroaming peacock and peahen flock who you are liable to meet anywhere, although generally not too far from the museum itself. Well worth a visit for a look and a cuppa. What I like about the place is that no matter how often you visit it, there's always something to see and the staff are friendly and welcoming.

  • Gardens are gorgeous and very few people were there. Peacock food is available at the tea room. Well worth the €1. You will want to spend most, if not all day there. A must see in Wexford.
