  • What an amazing building! I did a self guided tour with my three kids. Unfortunately there were no guided tours as the tours are free on the first Wednesday of each month. I would thoroughly recommend a visit to the house and a walk around the grounds and down by river Liffey.
  • Lovely park and house. The grounds are very big, so can have a long walk through beautiful scenery. There's river valley and nice picnic areas. House has exhibitions on regularly​. Bit expensive for a tour tho.
  • Beautiful place for a nice stroll with the family. An extra treat if the market is on, huge selection of treats and homemade wares. No better place in Kildare on a nice Sunday afternoon!!
  • Lovely to see such sympathetic restoration of this lovely house. It has retained the warm feeling of a family home. Many thanks
  • Really nice walks by the river and through the woods. The house itself is kept beautifully. Parking can be tricky on busy days and changing to use the simple playground is nothing more than extorting money from families with young children
