Johnstown Castle, County Wexford, Leinster
Johnstown Castle, in Wexford county, best exemplifies to perfection the harmony between great Victorian revival castles and their surrounding ornamental grounds.
Built for the Grogan-Morgan family between 1810 and 1855 and incorporating part of a more ancient castle, this turreted, battlemented and machicolated castle of gleaming silver-grey ashlar is perfectly set in mature woodlands and lakes.
The property was presented as a gift to the Irish Nation in 1945 and was later occupied by the Department of Agriculture who established an agricultural institute here and undertook to maintain but not to alter the ornamental grounds.
