Killrudddery is a heritage visitor attraction on Dublin’s doorstep, housing three generations of the Brabazon family whose ancestors have lived at Killruddery since 1618.

Killruddery is a true celebration of the Great Outdoors and an authentic, bio-diverse space. We continue to meet long-standing Members who enjoy Killruddery as their own back garden; it is our delight to build a strong community here who are as passionate about conserving this estate as we are. We produce chemical-free vegetables, fruit, cut-flowers and free-range meats for our Farm Shop and all our ‘garden-to-plate’ menus in the Grain Store Cafe and Tea Room.

Over the past decade, we have responded to the challenge of preserving the House and Gardens by transforming Killruddery into a popular visitor attraction on Ireland’s Ancient East, a working farm and a private hire venue for Weddings and Corporate Events. However, at the heart of this enterprise, we wish to protect Killruddery’s soul and unique character as our special family home.

Our guided House Tours open a door to our family history, a 400 year story that continues to unfold.
