About Killruddery Estate  

Killruddery House & Gardens near Bray in County Wicklow has been home to the Brabazon family (the Earls of Meath) since 1618. Nestled between the mountains and the sea and just a stone’s throw away from Dublin, Killruddery is a great historic house of Ireland. The magnificent 800–acre estate includes flowering woodland, painterly formal 17th century gardens, a high–hedge sylvan theatre, long ponds and a walled garden. A member of HHI (Historic Houses of Ireland), Killruddery offers garden admission and house tours.

Today, three generations of the Brabazon family live in the 17th century house and estate, and under the stewardship of Lord and Lady Ardee, Killruddery has been transformed into a cultural highlight and visitor’s attraction in Ireland’s Ancient East.

Celebrating the seasonal bounty of the estate is an everyday affair at Killruddery. For lots more about the estate, see
