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.

Hi, I'm not sure. We were there for the groove festival. Beautiful grounds for a ceremony. I would contact the owners directly to enquire.
