well worth a visit, only a short journey outside Dublin, and well signposted so you cant possibly get lost. The tour takes about fifty minutes or so, and the guide was really good and made it very enjoyable. The rooms are lovely, and you get to see quite a bit of the house, plus if you feel like it you...

Our family of 6 had a lovely few hours here. There is a nice tour of the house and the guide is excellent and very informative. The kids enjoyed the play area and maze. There are very nice walks around here and a lovely coffee shop. It is very reasonable and we would recommend it to others. The only negative... More

An absolutely beautiful house - each room more amazing than the last. Have never seen such extraodinary plaster ceilings in all the many big houses we have toured (which must be well over one thousand by now). Definitely the most perfect and stunning building in Ireland. Downside: guided tours. These are never the ideal way to see a house and... More

Was here two years ago for a guided tour and we loved it. Visited again today we staying at the nearby golf hotel. We were lucky enough to have the sun out and shining today so went to the playground at the back to pass the time. We then booked a ride on a horse-drawn carriage and got tickets for... More

If you are in Dublin for several days, this is a choice for 1/2 day trip to see a wonderful house and get the understanding of the life and style of rich people in Ireland. House tour with guide takes about an hour, but you can spend the rest in the gardens. Unfortunately, not all of the art collection is... More

Russborough House is a Magnificent House. The interiors and details are plentiful and it's history fascinating. But Russborough House seems to be slowing transforming into Theme Park, with attractions more based on keeping the kids minds off the visit than giving them an opportunity to experience something that is becoming scarce. The Gift shop is overladen with the same "souvenirs"... More

Recently I revisited Russborough House. My first visit was in 1966 when Sir Alfred Beit, the then owner of the house took us on the tour. I was with a group who were attending the International Summer School at Trinity College, Dublin. At that time the complete art collection was still in the house and Sir Alfred showed us his...

Cannot review the tour of the house but we were disappointed with the cafe. We chose not to eat there as most of the available tables still had previous customers plates on them

The tour of the mansion is informative and describes the furniture, art work and objects of art in detail. They are absolutely gorgeous and worth the price of admission.
