Beautiful Marble Sculptures, the house was ok and you had to take a tour. The guide was not great, but I wanted to see the Sculptures. The garden was beautiful and a very nice walk.

Worth a look if you are at a lose end, the National Trust do this so much better. Both house and garden have interesting features some of the staff are knowledgeable.

Killruddery House is a great place to visit, the gardens are fantastic and the house has a lot of history. Sometimes concerts or other cultural events are held in the grounds these are sometimes expensive but almost always worth the money.
