Blessingbourne is an historic country house and estate, built in the 18th century in an Elizabethan style. Bursting with character and filled with Arts and Crafts features, the manor is complemented by beautiful grounds and backed by mature trees. The estate also hosts the fascinating Carriage and Costume Museum, which is packed with historic paraphernalia and shares the stories of those who have lived in the house throughout the centuries.
Slane Castle has been home to the Conyngham family since 1703, and has a colourful history. The bold, crenelated building is rich with 18th century interiors, and enjoys a picturesque riverside setting. The working distillery at Slane is a more recent addition: known for its delightful Irish whiskey, a guided tour shows the production of the tipple and culminates in a tasting.
