We decided to visit Mount Stewart during the school summer holidays to get my 11 year old away from her tablet and learn something new. (We are both National Trust members so admission was free) The house itself has been sympathetically restored and they have done an amazing job. There is a member of staff located in each room of...

Mount Stewart house is beautiful. The open plan way to view it now is much more relaxed than formal tours. However there are still guides in each room who are willing to tell stories and interact with the children so they can learn more about how life used to be in a grand home

We paid a visit to Mount Stewart this week and we had a fantastic day. The weather was great and the grounds of the estate was brimming with colour and a wonderful lake in the centre of this beautifull property added to the amazing scenery. With trees that are hundreds of years old and all the lovely shrubs and flowers... More

As I had no visited the attraction since the house had been revamped it was top of my list for this visit. I was impressed new areas have been opened to the public and a real feel of the length of the house can be felt on the first floor. You can see where the money has been spent however... More

Great setting by the Lough. The NT staff are really helpful and knowledgeable. We found the house and especially the gardens well worth visiting. A must see.

The newly restored Mount Stewart house is well worth a visit. The transformation is amazing with many parts of the house which were previously unopened to the public, including the chapel, now accessible. Very knowledgeable guides, all most polite and welcoming. The gardens, as ever, are a delight.

Beautiful house and friendly guides with so many interesting facts about the house and the place the previous owners had in Irish, British and European history. This was my second visit in the last couple of years and it was great to see the result of some of the work which was in progress last time.
