Always love a walk at Castletown. Vast grounds to walk around and beautiful walks by the Liffey.

We had an excellent tour of Castletown house which reveals Irish culture at its height. The house is an extensive Palladian home and wonderful trim. Afterwards you can visit the grounds which have follies and are pleasant to walk through.
