With one of the most comprehensive displays of farming and rural life in the country, the Irish Agricultural Museum and Johnstown Castle Gardens make a wonderful day out for all the family - whatever the weather. The beautifully maintained ornamental gardens surrounding the castle extend to 40 hectares and feature three lakes, a walled garden and a resident family of peacocks.

This is an impeccably kept landscape. The gardens are gorgeous and it's an easy walk around the grounds. The museum is interesting and much larger than it looks. There is so much stuff to see. The peacocks are cool too!
