Russborough House

Yesterday we took a trip to the always interesting Russborough House in Wicklow. I have been here many times, but today was the first time that they allowed photography during the tour of the house. Our Guide Iris was an incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the House from the Mitford Sisters up to present day, including the four robberies that the Art Collection suffered over the years including the notorious Martin Cahill’s robbery too. There are so many things to do at Russborough House, from a Maze, walled garden, walks, playground, artisan shops and workshops, The National Bird of Prey Centre, as well as a Cafe. On some occasions, I have seen Polo Cross being played in the grounds of the house. If you are looking for a place to visit with either guests or your family, I think everyone will find something to enjoy at Russborough House.
