Russborough House

We drove through the Wicklow Gap and the scenery was very beautiful.

It is quoted Russborough is the most beautiful house in Ireland. The weather was poor but we did still walk in the grounds despite the rain.  We did both the rhodedendron and wildlife walks. For anybody with kids the play park looks amazing.

We booked the Russborough House tour. It was per chance that we were the only two who had booked for that time which meant we had the guide to ourselves. Seemingly you can book a private tour for 150 euros so we did well for 24 euros which included the exhibition for the two of us. The guide was very knowledgeable from the details of every painting and artist to the makers of the fine furnishings and carpets. I doubt there was anything she didn't know about the house and the families. I really recommend a visit if you are in the area.
