Ardgillan is a large 18th Century country manor house (1738) built in extensive grounds overlooking the Irish Sea. The demesne features a walled garden and a rose garden. Within the house, the ground floor rooms and the kitchens are open to visitors (guided tour only). Ardgillan Park is unique among Dublin’s regional parks for the magnificent views it enjoys of the coastline. A panorama, taking in Rockabill Lighthouse, Colt Church, Shenick and Lambay Islands may be seen, including Sliabh Foy, the highest of the Cooley Mountains, and the Mourne Mountains can be seen sweeping down to the sea. Ardgillan Castle is open all year round. Access to the castle is by guided tour only. Tours are available on demand. The team of tour guides is experienced, with a great knowledge and understanding of the castle and its family occupants, The Taylors. The Ardgillan Castle tour is approximately one hour long.

Fantastic location - what a view - with plenty of space and lots of activities. It is a lovely setting with plenty of obstacles for kids of all ages. It is a short walk from the car park but you cannot bring bikes as cycling is not allowed on the paths. There are toilets and a small snack shop in the playground (with hot drinks) so parents and kids could easily spend a couple of hours here. Parking is free and beside a large green area where the kids can play football while you set up the picnic or light the fire in the designated BBQ area. This is one of the best free places where your children will have lots and lots of fun.

One of my favourite playgrounds with a view. Lots of parking and picnic benches and lots of space to run around. It's about a 5 min walk through a forest to get to playground. Walking back up with buggies is always fun!!!
