Club Outing – Russborough House

Russborough House and the National Bird of Prey Centre

Two magic outings in one place on the same day. The House and Gardens are open 10 am – 5 pm. The Falconry is open 11 am – 4 pm with a display at 3.30 pm.

Russborough House was built in 1741 by Joseph Leeson, the son of a wealthy brewer in Dublin. Guided tours are available from 10 am to 5 pm.

The House and Falconry each attract a charge (see websites http://www.russborough.ie and http://nationalbirdofpreycentre.ie/)

The Brambles Tea Room is in the unique setting of the former Russborough kitchen.

We’ll meet at 13:30 in the car park (https://goo.gl/maps/kwYsv2hmAzS2).

Russborough is just off the N81 through Blessington

You could bring:

Camera and standard and wide angle lens and a zoom for the birds’ shots. A tripod and cable release, filters and warm and waterproof clothing (this is Ireland after all).

For more details contact outings@offshoot.ie.


It’s easy to become distracted when taking photographs. Use common sense, take responsibility for your own safety and then go shoot and have fun.
