  • Fantastic to have Castletown House and Parkland in Celbridge. Daily tours, monthly artisan foods and craft markets. Beautiful walks over acres and acres of green fields, wildlife conservation area. Families and their dogs are welcome but strict leash control is a must. Enjoy a nice coffee/lunch in the coffeehouse. Well worth visiting.
  • The meadows near the house are in spectacular condition at the moment. Beautiful wildflower meadows so seldom seen. Such a joy to walk around. Had tea in the cafe.
