Welcome to Castletown House

When it was built in the 1720s, Castletown set a radical precedent and it is an extraordinary part of our cultural inheritance. Now, as the OPW breathes contemporary life into Ireland’s earliest and finest Palladian house, it is trailblazing once more. We hope you enjoy your visit.

Open Daily during Season

The house is open seven days a week from 16th March to 5th November 2017. Tickets can be purchased on site at the visitor reception desk in the main house. The grounds are open all year round, and are free to enter and explore.
