Standing in the Russborough House parklands one can take in breathtaking views of Blessington Lakes and Wicklow Mountains. A walk around the gardens of Russborough House is completely free of charge. Keep an eye out for the various wildlife that reside here including swans, foxes, badgers, hares and rabbits.

The Russborough House & Parklands maze is opened from March-November every day of the week. A token must be obtained at reception to gain entry to this feature. In 1978 Sir Alfred Beit opened the house for guided tours which remain available to this day. Inside you will witness lavish furniture, tapestries, carpets, art collections and so much more.
