The Castle itself displays the collective talents of some of Ireland and England’s most distinguished architects and includes the famous Gothic ballroom. The parklands were laid out by the distinguished landscape architect, Capability Brown.

For over 25 years Slane Castle has been hosting famous Rock Stars at the now world famous open air rock concerts held within the great natural amphitheater below the Castle.
