In 2017, counters on site recorded 679,496 visitors to Castletown Estate.

In 2018, 642,278 visitors are recorded.

The precise visitor numbers are, in point of fact, higher as digital counters are not in place at all entrances to the estate.

Total number of visitors who availed of guided tours was 8,062 in 2017, and 13,397 in 2018.
