This is a very popular walk near the seaside town of Skerries and we can see why! The walk starts with a downhill path to the impressive Ardgillan Castle but it’s when we got beyond the castle that the true beauty of the castle grounds emerged. Beyond the castle we were treated to beautiful panoramic views of Skerries harbour and the coastline. Another unexpected treat was the fairy houses dotted around the trees near the castle. There’s lots of amenities – a playground, a cafe, toilets, a walled garden and ample parking. We’ll definitely be returning.
