The Tour guide was amazing, former butler to Lord Waterford for many years, his knowledge of the family and the Estate combined with his sense of humour made this Tour a hugely enjoyable experience.

Excellent tour with former Butler Basil. Interesting history learned along the way. Kids (9&11yrs) loved it. Stunning.

I just loved this tour of Curraghmore House. Firstly the house and gardens are private and therefore doesn’t have the commercialised atmosphere that a lot of these places have - there’s a very limited number of tours allowed. Lord Waterford literally walked past us to...More
