The delightful Johnstown Castle, built in the style of the Gothic Revival, is surrounded by gardens and forests, 6 km southwest of Wexford. In 1945, the mansion came into the possession of the state, and today restoration work is being carried out here.
Of particular beauty to the estate of Johnstown is given by its lands, which are stretched with Italian gardens and patterned lakes. A large number of trees are diluted with blooming azaleas and camellias. Here you can see rare Japanese cedars and mahogany.
There are three lakes on the territory of the magnificent park, the largest of them is located directly opposite the castle, so that the Gothic towers are reflected in the water. There are over 200 species of trees and shrubs here: oaks, cypresses, magnolias, azaleas, rhododendrons.
The Irish Agricultural Museum is also located here.
