Johnstown Castle, Wexford

Although Johnstown Castle was rebuilt in the 19th century, the estate dates back to the 1170s when one of the first Norman families to settle in Ireland, the Esmondes, set up house on the site. The spectacular ornamental grounds and gardens surrounding the castle were designed by Daniel Robertson who is famed for the gardens at Powerscourt in Wicklow (see my Powerscourt post here).

Our visit coincided with a display of horticultural and floral art spread out around the extensive castle gardens. Come with us as we visit several of the exhibits and enjoy the expansive grounds and gardens!
