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 Green Gym. There is also a restaurant; The Moody Boar. The Palace Building and Chapel are also open to the public periodically and the Palace Gardens are extremely popular for wedding photography.
On Saturday mornings at 9.30am, Armagh Parkrun is held in the Palace Demesne. It is a free, timed 5 km run and visitors can contact Armagh Information Centre to get details about how to register before their first run. Everyone enjoys a post run coffee in The Moody Boar Restaurant!
Internationally renowned Armagh artist J.B. Vallely has a collection of works housed in the refurbished Archbishops Palace and visitors are invited to browse this exciting gallery.
