ardgillanAbout Ardgillan Castle
Although referred to as a Castle, the residence at Ardgillan is a large country-styled house with castellated embellishments. Originally named “Prospect House”, the central section was built in 1738 by Robert Taylor, with the west and east wings added in the late 1800s.

Initially the site was heavily wooded, the name Ardgillan being derived from the Irish “Ard Choill” meaning High Wood. It was cleared out by service soldiers and itinerant workers in return for one penny a day, sleeping accommodation and one meal.

The house consists of two storeys over a basement which extends out under the lawns on the southern side of the building. When occupied, the ground and first floors were the living accommodations while the west and east wings were servants’ quarters and estate offices. The basement comprised of the service floor, the kitchen and stores. The Castle has now been restored and the ground floor rooms and kitchens are open to visitors for guided tours.

Halloween National Reptile Zoo Kilkenny

DayOut comments:

Visited here in Summer 2015 and it’s well worth a look. The team are very knowledgeable and passionate and getting up close to these reptiles is a really a unique experience that you simply won’t get anywhere else! We saw lots of reptiles, large snakes and were simply a sheet of polycarbonate away from the crocs/alligators. Viewing the inhabitants of the zoo during the day is one thing – doing it at night with just a glow stick adds an extra element! Hope we don’t meet this guy in the dark!
