Houses, Castles and Gardens of Ireland

Houses, Castles and Gardens of Ireland (HCGI)

HCGI is a subscription organisation dedicated to the promotion of visiting its members’ properties. Ranging from tower houses to castles, country mansions, cottages ornés, formal gardens, farms and demesnes, the properties exemplify the diverse range of Ireland’s historic residential architecture, landscape design and colourful social history from ancient times to the present day.

Members are provided with a marketing service that connects them to group tour organisers, film location/event managers, wedding planners, media representatives, and heritage/culture seekers. HCGI also helps the public plan memorable journeys and great occasions.

When planning a visit, be sure to contact the property to make certain of the opening hours.

All but two of the below properties have an individual listing on the Dublin Places To Visit website. The two unlisted properties are Primrose Hill Garden and Hunters Hotel.
