We visited the house on Saturday last. Our tour guide was George. He was an excellent guide, so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the house and it's history. Lovely shop and restaurant there. Strongly recommend a visit.

Russborough is better preserved, has a lot more of its contents kept in the house and on view. Go to both, take the tours but if you can only get to 1, I would go to Russborough.

The guided tour lasts almost an hour. They leave on the hour ie. at 1.00pm then 2.00pm then 3.00pm etc. The Maze needs half an hour -particularly if you have children !!
