Reopening Russborough

We are delighted to be in a position to reopen almost fully from Monday 29 June and we hope that Russborough will engage and inspire you in 2020. 

The safety of our staff and visitors is paramount to us and we have implemented a number of measures for you to enjoy your visit in a safe and friendly environment. We kindly ask you to behave responsibly throughout your visit, to ensure that your safety, and that of other visitors and our staff is protected.

Guided Family Tours are personal to YOUR family group, and must be pre-booked online at least 24 Hours in Advance. They operate Wednesday to Sunday at 11:00am.
