Author's Review

History and heritage have a huge part to play in many of Ireland's tourist attractions, and a number of them do skirt around the subject of agriculture despite it being still to this day, a huge part of Ireland's culture and it's economy. Here at the Irish Agricultural Museum at Johnstown Castle they focus wholeheartedly on the subject of farming and they have the largest amount of agricultural displays that I have ever seen in one museum. I had a really enjoyable day at Johnstown Castle and it's farming museum, and despite me only being able to stay for a couple of hours, I could of literally spent all day here. It's very hard in just 150 words to tell you how great this museum is, but I know once you have been there and experienced it for yourself, You will see exactly why I chose the Irish Agricultural Museum as one of my Top 100 Attractions in Ireland.
