RussBorough House & The Meeting Waters

Russborough House & The Meeting Waters

Saturday 11th August

This day tour will take us to Russborough House which was built in 1740 and is referred to as “The Most Beautiful House in Ireland”.

This Palladian Mansion was designed in 1740 by Richard Cassels and has the longest façade of any house in Ireland stretching 700 feet across the beautiful Wicklow landscape and overlooking the Blessington Lakes.

The history of Russborough is so varied it would take too long to tell it all in our brochure but Candy Tours will have all prebooked for August 11th and the exhibition centre will tell the complete story of “The most beautiful House in Ireland”.

There is an award-winning restaurant in Russborough and also an extensive Gift Shop selling a wide range of crafts, souvenirs etc.

After we leave Russborough our Coach will take us across the famous Wicklow Gap where we can view the beautiful Wicklow Mountains in all their splendour. We will spend some time at the beautiful meetings of the water in the vale of Avoca before heading to Lawless Hotel, Aughrim for dinner.

After dinner, we will return to our original pickup points.
