The guided house tour, led (superbly) by Iris, was comprehensive, clear, well-presented and professional. She went at a suitable pace and had time to answer questions whenever asked. Spectacular rooms, art, furniture.More

Russborough is better preserved, has a lot more of its contents kept in the house and on view. Go to both, take the tours but if you can only get to 1, I would go to Russborough.
