€12 for an adult guided tour on the hour each hour from 9:00 - 16:00 I think it was on a Saturday. I was on the 15:00 tour and it was the biggest tour of any grand Georgian residences I've been into date - approx. 20-25 ppl. Pro's & Con's to that number, but testament to the popularity as a...

We bought tickets for the sheepdog demonstration and for the guided tour. We started with the sheepdog demo. Michael from the Irish Working Sheepdog, showed us how sheepdogs do their work. Very nice to see how he works with the sound of his voice and with wistling. He takes time to explain about the dogs and the different breed of... More

The grounds, the view and a fantastic tour and guide.... My first time in the house after all the stories about robberies I finally got to see the real Russborough... It was really worth it...

If you have lunch in the tea rooms at Russborough House, you can still see Lady Beit’s balcony, where she supervised the kitchen from above, scrutinising every detail without risking her skirts. In the cellar, you can see the room that was probably the butler’s pantry – I say probably, because it might have been the room with the unrelated... More

This Palladian house offers you a rare chance to see an abundance of plasterwork by the Lafranchini brothers and a collection of paintings and furnishing. The house and the grounds are well-kept and the view across the lake to the Wicklow mountains is stunning.

Six of us had got together for a family get together in Wicklow for three days.. On 18th July we decided to commence the day with a trip to Russborough House and progress to Powerscourt later. We took the 11.00am house tour conducted by a lady named Joan and it turned out to be the most informative knowledgeable trip because... More

Easy to find, well run. Craft shops, very expensive because they are handmade. Playground is small, have to pay for most things. Went to tea rooms and ordered tomato and cheese panini, waited 15 mins, then went to counter and was asked what I was waiting for, they said they would bring it down. I got it 5 mins later.... More

Russborough House is very well renowned & rightly so. The house & grounds are beautifully kept & extremely well run. We had an excellent tour of the house & the guide - Iris, was superb, as she gave us so much information in her own unique way. We then dropped in to the tea rooms & the variety on offer... More

Russborough House is a brilliant day out for all. The house is beautifully preserved with fabulous art and an informative audio visual display in the basement. The guides are very knowledgeable and entertaining. The restaurant has a good range of hot and cold food. Make time to visit the walled gardens when they are open to see a beautiful peaceful...
