Kilwaughter Castle – A Local Heritage Exhibition

Larne Museum & Arts Centre

Friday 1 December – Thursday 21 December 2023

An exhibition exploring the enduring appeal of Kilwaughter Castle, its people and place in local history.

Few buildings in Co Antrim have endeared themselves to their local people as much as Kilwaughter Castle. The current castle was designed by John Nash in 1807 for Edward Jones Agnew, but there has been a castle here since the 17th century.

What is it that is so special about this 400 year old building?

The Castle has been a family home, a convalescent home for soldiers during WW1 and it was a base for many American and Belgian troops during WW2.

It represents national and international history at a local level and has played its role in shaping our local history.

The exhibition will be on display from Friday 1 until Thursday 21 December and includes Saturday opening on 9 December. Opening hours: Monday – Friday, 10am – 4pm.
