Welcome to Farmleigh

 
A historic house holding important collections, an art gallery, a working farm, and the official Irish State guest house, Farmleigh House and Estate is open seven days a week. An estate of seventy-eight acres situated to the north-west of Dublin’s Phoenix Park, Farmleigh provides accommodation for visiting dignitaries and guests of the nation. As a historic house, Farmleigh remains a unique representation of its heyday, the Edwardian period, and houses important artworks and furnishings, as well as the Benjamin Iveagh collection of rare books, bindings, and manuscripts which is held in the Library. The extensive pleasure grounds feature walled and sunken gardens, and scenic lakeside walks.

The Estate also boasts a working farm with a herd of Kerry Black cows. Farmleigh is managed by the Office of Public Works. Join one of our knowledgeable guides for a tour of Farmleigh House that takes you from the eighteenth century, when building commenced, right up to the present day.

Access to the House is by guided tour. Tours are available from Monday to Sunday between 10.00 and 17.30 with the last entry at 16.30.
