An estate of seventy-eight acres situated to the northwest of Dublin’s Phoenix Park, Farmleigh provides accommodation for visiting dignitaries and guests of the nation.
As a historic house and former home of the Guinness family, 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. Enjoy a coffee or lunch in the Boathouse Café or spend time viewing the latest exhibition in Farmleigh Gallery.
