Killruddery House and Gardens has often been described as wonderful place to escape for a great day out and has been home to the Brabazon Family (the Earls of Meath) since 1618. Located on the outskirts of the capital where Dublin meets Wicklow, it’s a hidden gem just waiting to be discovered.

In the 1820s, the 10th Earl of Meath engaged the services of architects Richard Morrison and his son William to remodel the house. Although the house was greatly reduced in the 1950’s much of the Morrisons’ design and architecture still remains. Today, Killruddery House is one of Ireland’s most beautiful and successful Elizabethan-Revival Mansions and plays host to a varied calendar of events throughout the year. Killruddery Gardens are the oldest in Ireland surviving in their original 17th century unique style along with some 18th and 19th century additions.

The Estate is a popular location for many well known films and TV series including My Left Foot, Angela’s Ashes, The Tudors and Camelot.
