A surprisingly wonderful tour visit, steeped in history, part home, part estate, part museum. I highly recommend this stop when visiting the Drumcliff area of Ireland. Historical characters and references are so interesting in a spectacular setting...more

We went because of interest in Countess Markevicz, whose childhood home this was, but the history of the whole family was fascinating, as well as the story of the house’s restoration. Several interesting exhibits in the coach house (although my husband complained of the lighting)....More

Euro 12 to access house, which can only be visited on a tour. These appear to take place hourly and last for 45 minutes. It is currently used as a family residence so upper floors are private. Most knowledgeable tour guides, closely linked to famous Irish Women, the subject of the 2018 exhibition.

Unfortunately the house is not wheelchair friendly because of the fact that it is old. The coach house where the cafe is situated is accessible though some of the museum/exhibition area is not (so far as I recall).
