Brief Description of Project
A partnership between the Irish heritage Trust and Teagasc developed this Visitor Centre c.1,100m2. The Visitor’s center is the entrance point for Johnstown Castle grounds and Castle tours. The works included kitchen and associated site development works, new access gates, upgrade to access roads and provision of new carparking in a historic setting. The Irish Heritage Trust will operate the site as a visitor center with Johnstown Castle being the center of the attraction. The building was situated within the walls of the “Farmyard” of the original castle, with the original yard wall kept as one of the walls of the new building. The contract included new paths around the lakes.
