Visit Strokestown Park House and Gardens in Roscommon

Discover Strokestown Park! Nestled in beautiful County Roscommon, this unique property gives you an authentic glimpse into the lives of generations of people who lived and worked here over the centuries, each adding their own chapter to the story and leaving their mark. Immerse yourself in the history of the Great Irish Famine as you visit the National Famine Museum where you’ll learn about the devastating impact that the most tragic event in Irish history had on the people of Roscommon and Ireland. We look forward to welcoming you to Strokestown Park and National Famine Museum and we recommend allowing approximately three hours to see the whole site. Take a guided house tour with our passionate guides or enjoy the National Famine Museum at your own pace. Explore the glorious gardens and new children’s garden trail, or wander through the woodland.

What are the opening hours?

You’re in luck! During the summer, the castle is open every single day! Open seven days a week, the opening times are from 10:30 to 17:30.

The six acres of walled gardens at Strokestown Park offer something for everyone. From the restored croquet lawn and summer house, to the pleasure garden and fruit and vegetable garden. Discover exotic plant specimens gathered from all over the world by Henry Pakenham. Explore the new children’s garden trail, or wander through the woodland, which includes fine specimens of mature Beech and Oak, planted over 300 years ago by Thomas Mahon. Enjoy the herbaceous border, the fernery, the lily pond, the Victorian rose garden and the vinery. In the walled gardens you can explore the history of the gardens and their changing uses over the centuries for produce and pleasure. Whatever the weather, and whatever the season, the sights, sounds and smells of the gardens at Strokestown Park are a constantly changing kaleidoscope, which will fill all your senses and brighten up any day. Improvement works are ongoing in the gardens and we always welcome volunteers to assist with some of our garden projects. There is no need to book your garden visit in advance.
