This is one of the grandest houses in Ireland, built in mid XVIII century. Beautiful collection of Old Masters: Rubens, Goya, Vermeer, etc. The best art museum in Ireland.

Russborough house is a great place to go with the family. There's loads to do but plan ahead as activities require payment. The food in the tea room are delicious but go early as the food can sell fast.

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 !!
