I visited Russborough House recently with a friend. The grounds and gardens are not particularly well kept and rather disappointing. However, the house is in good condition and the guided tour of the house was really interesting. The tour lasted just under an hour, we visited several rooms upstairs and downstairs and our guide had fantastic knowledge of the history... More

What a fun day for adults and children! Since we have a border collie at home, the kids were very anxious to see border collies at work, and we definitely got to do that.

While the entire Russborough Estate is a fun day out for the family, the highlight is definitely the sheepdog demonstration. I've lived in Dublin for over a year and only recently found out about the demonstration. I have brought 2 different sets of visitors and both have said its one of their favorite things about their trip. Michael, the shepherd/guide,... More

This place has really upped it's game in recent years, and is definitely making a bee-line for families. Lovely play area here for kids (we avoided this like the plague!). Anyway, lovely walks around the grounds (do not miss out on the less-travelled route up the back of the house through bits of woodland - this is beautiful and must... More

Beautiful house. Try the horse & trap, the coach driver will tell you the history of the house while he takes you around the property. Also the sheep dog trials are very entertaining. Great craft shops there and a lovely cafe. Not to forget the playground for the kids. Great day eveeyone.
