Johnstown Castle 

Johnstown Castle is a vivial castle located in County Wexford, Ireland. The first castle built on the estate was a tower house built in the late 12th century by the Esmonde family, Normans who came to southeast Ireland from Lincolnshire in the 1170s after the Norman invasion of Ireland. Oliver Cromwell spent a night on the estate in 1649, prior to the October 1649 Sack of Wexford. The Esmondes were expelled during the Cromwellian years.

The castle was subsequently bought by the Grogan family in 1692. Cornelius Grogan, owner of the castle, was hanged for his part in the 1798 Rebellion, and the estate was restored to his brother John Knox Grogan. With his son Hamilton Knox Grogan-Morgan, they created Johnstown Castle as it stands today, on the “bones” of the Norman tower house. Daniel Robertson designed the Gothic Revival castle and parts of the surrounding land.

By 1863, the demesne was divided in two, with a deer park in the north and the castle, pleasure grounds, farm, and two artificial lakes to the south. Lady Maurice FitzGerald (née Lady Adelaide Jane Frances Forbes), wife of Lord Maurice FitzGerald (son of Charles FitzGerald, 4th Duke of Leinster) was the last owner to live in the house.

During World War I, Royal Naval Air Service airships were based at Johnstown Castle and primarily used to deal with the U-boat threat, although with limited success. Following the death of Lady Maurice in November 1942, the Johnstown Estate was inherited by her grandson, Maurice Victor Lakin. The castle and Estate were formally handed over to the State by the family in lieu of death duties.

The castle was taken over by the Department of Agriculture (later An Foras Talúntais from 1959 and Teagasc from 1988) and used for research into soils with laboratories created in the castle. It opened to the public in 2019 following a period of renovation and is managed by the Irish Heritage Trust under Curator Matt Wheeler. Work on conserving and restoring the building continues.

Johnstown Castle is now a popular tourist attraction, offering guided tours and educational activities for all ages. It is also home to an impressive collection of plants and trees that attract wildlife such as otters and bats. Visitors can explore the walled garden, lakeside walks, woodland trails, and formal gardens. The castle grounds are also used for private events, weddings and corporate events.
