Visit Huntington Castle in County Carlow, a 1625 garrison on the historically important Wexford to Dublin route. Check out the beautiful gardens, guided tours and family events at this 17th-century house.

Head to Huntington Castle and Gardens and discover a treasure trove of historical architecture and objects. Meander down the serene Yew Tree Walk and admire the water features in Huntington’s delightful pleasure grounds.

Originally built as a defensive garrison, Huntington Castle was developed into a family estate by the Baron of Esmonde. Take a tour and view the old kitchens, drawing room and the refurbished conservatory, and hear the stories of the castle and its occupants brought to life. See the intriguing Fellowship of Isis Temple —in the 1970s, this spiritual organisation established the castle’s basement as a place of worship of the Egyptian Goddess.

Explore the gardens and get truly lost in nature. From the French lime trees to the ornamental lawns and fishpond, this is perfect place for a family walk or a romantic stroll.
