Tours & Visiting Strokestown Park


As of Wednesday 7th October 2020: Due to the Government’s decision to move to Level 3 within Government Plan for Living with Covid-19, Strokestown Park House and the National Famine Museum will be closed until further notice.

The Parklands, Gardens, Woodland Walk & Shop will remain open 7 days as well as our Café with a takeaway offering. We would like to reassure you that the health and wellbeing of our visitors and staff continue to be our number one priority.


We are delighted that from 1st July we re-opened our Walled Gardens & National Famine Museum and we have started tours of the House once again. We are open daily from 11:00 to 4:00pm and have started daily tours of the house at 12:00 and 2:00pm. Spaces are limited to 15 on each tour and we ask that everyone wears masks on the tour of the house. We have a first-come, first-served policy. We encourage you to call between 11:00am and 4:00pm and book a place on the tour time and day of your choice.  The Famine Museum and Gardens are self-guided and do not require any booking. Visitors are asked to adhere to social distancing of 2m as advised by the HSE

We have made changes due to Covid-19 and follow strict health and safety regulations and we are delighted that all of our Irish Heritage Trust staff here at Strokestown Park have completed the training to obtain the Fáilte Ireland Covid-19 Safety Charter. Further information about the Failte Ireland Covid-19 Safety Charter is available at their website here. We would like to reassure you that the health and wellbeing of our visitors and staff continue to be our number one priority.

Our Café is open again with limited capacity and we are serving delicious coffee and teas with desserts. All is being served with takeaway available. We have limited seating inside and a fantastic amount of seating under bunting and trees outside. Our hot food at this time is limited to homemade soup, also served in takeaway containers.
