Just back after a lovely visit to Russborough House which was the Home of the Beit family. The interior Decoration, Furnishings and Ornate Plaster Ceilings should not be missed and worth a visit on their own, add to that the unique Art collection,Pictures Photographs and Films gathered by the Beits. Had lunch and then called to the Artisan workshops in... More

Don't miss the tour of the house. It's well worth a visit. I took two American friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The house, it's architecture, decoration and beautiful paintings. The staff are lovely and very helpful. We saw a sheepdog demonstration, visited the walled garden and took on the challenge of the maze. Those males who think... More

Good tour, very interesting, lots of information, you can visit the downstairs by yourself which tells the story of the last owners, old films, photographs etc Overall the tour and visiting the downstairs would take at least 2 hours. We visited in the afternoon so once we were finished we hoped to get a cup of tea etc but the... More

Really nice place to go with the family. It has a lovely playground that's free. It also has a fairy trail and a maze but you have to pay for these. 😕

A friend and I visited Russborough House during the week, what an amazing place, the lovely gentleman (tour guide) that showed us around the house was very knowledgeable and made the whole tour very interesting, he was even interacting with a few of the children, and this kept them very much engaged. We also ventured into the maze, what a... More

We went to Russborough House on a weekend especially for the sheepdog presentation and we greatly enjoyed that. It took about one hour and from a local shepherd we learned a lot about the type of dogs as well as the different breeds of sheep. We were quite amazed how fast the dogs reacted to the different commands and whistles.... More

The maze is a must as are the tea rooms with a fine selection of sweet and savory dishes to try. Wonderful walks around the grounds to work of the excesses afterwards. Very friendly staff also.

Beautiful location & setting. Staff were very friendly & helpful but was disappointed with standard of food. Asked for two scones and both broke in my hands as I tried to cut them.. A touch of the knife to butter them & they crumbled more. Also got kids lunch packs-no cookies left which was disappointing for the kids. Neither of... More

Absolutely gorgeous grounds and house. The food served as huge portions and tasted great. The grounds had a brilliant play park, maze and fairy trail. Girls were very happy all day. There was many craft shops where they performed their craft to show and sell. Even a blacksmith you could go and make your own fire pits at. Beat but... More

Thank you for the review of your visit and glad you enjoyed the various activities and attractions. We look forward to seeing you again later in the year but please bear in mind that the house is closed from November 2016 - Febraury 2017 for essential maintenance and repairs so do visit for the house tour outside these dates.
