We stopped at Russborough to break the journey from Cork to Dublin with a young family. We spent prob 2 hours in the gardens (Wildlife Walk and Fairy Walk), which was a real treat. The grounds are stunning, with engaging fairy houses for the kids....More

An amazing view of aristocratic life of five generations of families that have lived on this amazingly intact home and grounds. Beautiful art work, furniture and lovely tapestries. I highly recommend a visit to this wonderful piece of Irish history.

We are delighted you enjoyed visiting Russborough and experiencing the wonderful house tour with our expert local guides. Do please visit again later in the season and perhaps visit the National Bird of Prey centre when here. It is also a wonderful experience.

Russborough is better preserved, has a lot more of its contents kept in the house and on view. Go to both, take the tours but if you can only get to 1, I would go to Russborough.
