I went to see Ardgillan Demesne; It is a park, a castle [but not a true castle…], a playground, a gardens…  the second Sunday in March. It is by far the finest example of a park I have seen in Ireland to date.

Unlike Malahide Castle – all parts of the ‘demesne’ were open. It is put simply, amazing. I truly love it.

I could list every point of what was great – but – everything was great… except for the weather. Which was great by the time I was leaving. From start to finish including the coffee shop [and the photographs on the walls from Balbriggan Photography Society] was perfect. There wasn’t a hair out of place.

If I could give this park a 6 out of 5 rating I would. Well done to the grounds staff – you really have taken how a park and gardens should be maintained to a new high.
