This magnificent Palladian mansion stands on gently sloping ground leading down to the waters of Poulaphouca Reservoir, in which Wicklow Mountains are reflected. The interior of Russborough House has not lost its ornate stucco work, mahogany panelling or part of its period furnishings, without forgetting a priceless art collection bequeathed by Sir Alfred Beit, South-African gold magnate and former owner.
