Welcome to our home. The Brabazon family have been living at Killruddery since 1618 and today we are very happy that three generations live here.

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

‘My life is devoted’

Our motto has connected to different objectives over centuries – be it service to king or country, charity or philanthropy, housing or employment. However, there is a consistency of outlook and energy from the time that the Brabazon family MOVED INTO KILLRUDDERY.

Access the main formal rooms of Killruddery on our illuminating guided House Tour that reflects on the architectural transformations over the centuries.

Please be aware that House Tours may not be suitable for very young children and it may not be possible for you to bring a buggy through the house. For patrons with mobility issues and wheelchair users, we are happy to facilitate you. Please let our team know your requirements.
