Emo Court has a wonderful tour through the house, which is always led by a incredibly knowledgable and friendly guide. The gardens are a pleasure to walk around too. The Fr Browne exhibit is fascinating for photography fans like me, or Titanic buffs.

It's worth going here to see the house alone which has some fabulous rooms to see on the tour. The Father Browne exhibition is also worth visiting. The garden walk is lovely and worth doing if you have time.

What a gorgeous house - well worth the 5 euro entrance fee, even though the tour is relatively short. It has a great history and the stately rooms are a fantastic legacy to the restoration undertaken by Major Harrison.
