Service Description

Located only 30 minutes south of Dublin, Killruddery’s 800-acre estate is a sustainable, bio-diverse farm that includes flowering woodland, world-renowned 17th century gardens, cut flower gardens, high-hedged pathways, a natural amphitheatre area, the Long Ponds and a Walled Garden. Special family-orientated features include a Faerie Woodland Village and a Giant Sandpit in the Apple Orchard. Established by the fourth and sixth Earls of Meath, the Gardens are now lovingly overseen by the current 15th Earl of Meath and Lord and Lady Ardee – direct ancestors of the first Brabazons to live at Killruddery in 1618. The twenty acres of grass, 3.5 miles of hedges, long flowering borders, ancient trees and the Walled Garden, now producing for Killruddery’s kitchen, are maintained by a brilliant team of gardeners over the seasons. The Brabazon family have been living at Killruddery since 1618 and today we are very happy that three generations live here.
