From reading about Russborough, a number of terraced levels are on show but its not cleared if they were ever finished. The landscape layouts were originally Palladian but then altered to “Augustan” which are are not the pastoral slopes of capability brown. The heritage council have published an exhaustive history on Russborough House , If you are interested in the history of the garden, I have extracted this piece and attached to the bottom of the post.
The 18th century walled garden is gradually being restored by the RHSI. A curvilinear cast iron greenhouse is in existense here and is currently being restored. The restoration is being done by volunteers from the RHSI. Please note that this walled garden is only open on specific days so it might be worth calling or emailing the house on +353 (0)45 865239 \ firstname.lastname@example.org to avoid any disappointment.
Russborough House is really family friendly with lots to do for kids. The maze is one of the main features with a challenging 2000 metre beech hedge, formed at head height and is well maintained but obviously more beautiful in the summer with lush green leaves that turn brown in the Autumn. Its area is 20,000 sq ft and is a great challenge with accompanying map and number to call if you have any trouble getting out.
A decent kids playground is nearby with sandpit and also a spider web climbing frame for older kids to keep all ages happy. There is also an ever popular fairy trail and a birds of prey centre but its worth contacting to make sure all is open +353 (0)45 865239 \ email@example.com
