The Palace Demesne Public Park

Situated within walking distance of the City Centre, for over two hundred years the undulating parkland of the Palace Demesne has been one of the glories of Armagh.  The Demesne, comprising some 300 acres, is the creation of Archbishop Richard Robinson.  The Palace was the residence of the Archbishops of the Church of Ireland from 1770 to 1975.

The walks around the Demesne vary in distance and effort, taking you into the back meadows and around the more formal gardens.  There is also a chance to relax in the ‘Garden of the Senses’ created to provide a sensory experience that will appeal to both able-bodied and disabled visitors, the garden is made up of five distinct areas linked by a winding path.

The park includes a modern accessible Play Park and Outdoor Gym.
