WELCOME 

Welcome to our home. Our family has been living at Killruddery since 1618 and today we are very happy that three generations live here. Living heritage on Dublin’s doorstep!

Killruddery is a true celebration of the Great Outdoors and an authentic, bio-diverse space. We continue to meet long-standing Members who enjoy Killruddery as their own back garden; it is our delight to build a strong community here who are as passionate about conserving this estate as we are. We produce chemical-free vegetables, fruit, cut-flowers and free-range meats for our Farm Shop and all our ‘garden-to-plate’ menus in the Grain Store Café and Tea Room.

Over the past decade, we have responded to the challenge of preserving the House and Gardens by transforming Killruddery into a popular visitor attraction on Ireland’s Ancient East, a working farm and a private hire venue for Weddings and Corporate Events. However, at the heart of this enterprise, we wish to protect Killruddery’s soul and unique character as our special family home.

Our guided House Tours open a door to our family history, a 400 year story that continues to unfold.

You are most welcome. We hope you will enjoy your visit and return again and again.

Earl and Countess of Meath, Lord and Lady Ardee and the Brabazon Family.
