Russborough House

Russborough House was built in 1741 by Joseph Leeson, the son of a wealthy brewer in Dublin. The architect was Richard Castle, a great promoter of the Palladian style of architecture in 18th century Ireland. The house took approximately 10 years to build.

 We are delighted that for the 2008 season, a substantial selection of the Beit Collection of Paintings have been returned to Russborough. These paintings are now on view for those who wish to take the guided tour of the house.

In 2007 a walk in the demesne opened to the public which takes approximately one hour and it is proving very popular with both adults and children. In 2008 we have re-opened the substantial Beech Hedge Maze adjoining the house.

We look forward to welcoming you and your families to Russborough and hope you will enjoy the extensive collection of works of art: magnificent tapestries, furniture, clocks, mantelpieces, mirrors and the unusual 18th century plasterwork.
