Lovely cafe - saw a lot of it thanks to a bitterly cold day and small children in tow. We were put off the tour as we felt it wasn't suitable for very young and boisterous children and sadly there is no alternative. Still a walk round the estate, a trip through the maze and a play in the kids... More

The house and gardens are very nice. And there is a pleasant walk around the gardens. It is very expensive however. The parking is 2 euro and the cafe is very expensive

Visited here either my wife on the 14th november and decided to do the tour of the house. We got the 3pm guided tour and it was brilliant. To see the house and how it is being maintained is a credit to all. Was disappointed to hear that they receive no government funding and I thought what a pity that... More

Thank you very much for your kind words. The staff at Russborough are very proud of the house and parklands and it is very encouraging to receive your support. Do please tell family and friends to visit either up until Xmas this year or from March 2016 when we reopen the house to the public. More

I was here during the summer for a family picnic but did not enter the house. We recently got a voucher for afternoon tea, a tour of the house and a coffee table book. Although we were late arriving for the tour we were immediately accommodated and brought to join the tour. The tour guide was friendly and extremely knowledgeable.... More

On a rainy bank holiday Monday we decided to avoid the elements and paid a visit to Russborough House. We arrived in time for a guided tour which took us through the beautiful rooms and halls. The guide was excellent and extremely well informed, answering any questions with ease. Unfortunately we didn't get to visit the maze or explore the... More

If you are nearby this place is a must. Beautiful walks and excellent day out with kids in maze, fairy walk and beautiful gift shops and tea room. Tour of the house is a must.

This small mansion was rather depressing done all in gray stone with no pretty gardens to brighten up the place. It is touted for its art collection but we only found one or two really interesting. The nicest part are the ceilings which were truly crafted in plaster, not the molds that most mansions have. It takes a while to... More

We visited Russborough House with four children aged 5-16, and four adults, and everyone in our group really loved the entire experience. We found the house tour informative, interesting, interactive and absolutely beautiful. The basement is a special treat! Lunch in the cafe was just perfect - the ladies working there were especially charming and helpful, and the food was... More

We visited Russborough House as part of our CIE tour of Britain and Ireland in September 2015. Our tour guide was Joan and she was very knowledgeable in the history and owners of the home. The Lafranchini ceiling were beautiful. The gift shop had some very nice items.
