Borris House

The ancestral home of the MacMorrough Kavanaghs, High Kings of Leinster, Borris House is one of the most beautiful and historic Irish country houses located in the most spectacular scenery Ireland has to offer. The backdrop of the river Barrow which flows beside the beautiful woodland and gardens of Borris House make Borris House the jewel in the crown of Carlow.

Borris House is a unique venue for a range of events including weddings, concerts, civil ceremonies, exhibitions, historical house tours and cultural events. We offer accommodation onsite with 3 granite self catering cottages available to rent and there is a wide range of things to do during your stay at Borris House.

However, Borris House is foremost a home, lived in by the MacMorrough Kavanaghs, for the past 500 years. Both the house and family are steeped in Irish history and we invite you to visit us and experience how special Borris really is.
