The house is well-appointed, situated on the shores of the stunning Blessington Lakes and has been home to noble families, military leaders and sports stars in more recent times. The layout, décor and ambience is one of style and 18th-century glamour. If you’d like a taste of the good life, you can enjoy the royal treatment in our beautiful Manor House this summer.
