The Phoenix Park Visitor Centre displays information and historical interpretations of the Phoenix Park from 3500BC to the present day. Adjoining the Visitor Centre is the fully restored Ashtown Castle, a medieval tower house that probably dates before the 17th century. The castle had been incorporated into an 18th century mansion and was ‘rediscovered’ when this building was demolished due to dry rot. The beautifully maintained Victorian walled kitchen gardens are adjacent to the Visitor Centre.
This is a self guided tour, guiding information will be available.
