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...

We stumbled upon this stunning estate today and felt privileged to be able to wander around this newly opened to the public garden. Basil the wonderful friendly "butler"/tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and made us feel right at home. He even gave our 2 year old bread to feed to the Ducks. We also got a tour of the Shell... More

My brother and sister and I visited Curraghmore today, 31/03/15. On our arrival we were greeted by our very friendly guide. Although we are from Kilmacthomas, not too far away, I hadn't heard much about Curraghmore House, until my partner visited with his college group and returned to tell me all about it. I couldn't wait to visit the house... More

We visited Curraghmore House & Gardens on 19 March 2015. On our arrival, we were greeted (and thoroughly investigated) by Lady Waterford's teckel hound, Hector! We fell in love with him, and his breed, immediately!! The House & Gardens are undoubtedly impressive - not only as they currently stand (which is impressive enough) - but one can easily imagine the... More
