This is a beautiful part of a beautiful county. I have been on the tour a few times and some new facet of this wonderful house comes to light each time. Basil is a wonderful guide with an amusing turn of phrase and I could listen to his accent all day. To walk around the grounds and gardens is the... More

The Gardens and house are fantatsic however, there is even more potential here with the houses in the forecourt. Basil is a brilliant tour guide with a brilliant story to tell. This needs to be highlighted more as the whole country needs to see this place. The house tour is among the best you will see on the island.

Though a little difficult to find, Curraghmore House is well worth the effort. The house and gardens are at the end of a long drive-way beside a small river. It's not obvious as you enter the driveway, but parking is in the courtyard of the house itself. There's a tea room on the left of the courtyard as you enter,... More

While you might well need a sat nav to find this hidden gem ( there are no signs to direct you or no indication as to when tours commence from within the grounds itself ), it is well worth seeking out . The tour of the house ( ground floor ) was very detailed and lasted 1 hour . There... More

Visited yesterday with 2 friends from Canada. Basil greeted us @ the 11am tour slot & it happened to only be the three of us thus it was effectively a private tour. Far better experience than other Georgian periods as there was total access in each room we toured as opposed to the usual "stay behind the red rope". The... More

I had the pleasure of being the tour bus driver for Ciceroni Travel who were visiting Curraghmore House and Gardens and got to join the group for the tour. Basil (a former Butler of the House) was our guide and was extremely personable, informative and humourous. This is a real living house and family home which makes the experience all... More

What an experience!I found Curraghmore with a little difficulty as it is poorly signed but the small amount of trouble was very well worth it. I was the only visitor for the 2pm slot and so had the wonderful experience of being given a one to one by Basil the 5 star guide! Basil was the Butler at the house... More

Visted this beautiful estate and historic house with a group of work friends. Basil is an amazing guide and entertaining as well as informative. The house is a working house so not your typical museum type tour and all the more facinating for it. The family history is brought to life by Basil with great flair and storytelling. The shell...
