Visit Russborough House, which many consider to be one of the most beautiful houses in Ireland. The stately residence was built between 1741 and 1755 and boasts stunning interior decor. During your award-winning house tour, be sure to direct your attention overhead to examine the ornate plasterwork on the ceilings by the Lafranchini brothers, and don't miss the paintings by Claude Joseph Vernet. The 3D exhibit features fascinating photographs from the early 1900s and cinema footage from Sir Alfred and Lady Beit's travels. Kids will love the playground and hedge maze, and sheepdog performances are sure to entertain the whole family. Be sure to try the tasty home-baked goods in the tea room, too.
