Borris House is not a hotel. It is a private and unique historic house that was once the home of the Kings of Leinster. When you choose to have your celebration at Borris House, we open up our home to you and your guests. The stunning gardens and the reception rooms in the house are exclusively yours for your special occasion.
If you’d like to arrange to view Borris House for your event, please contact us.
Please note that house tours are now finished for the 2020 season. Gardens remain open from 12 pm to 5 pm Thursday to Sunday.
Please enquire in Gift Shop at Gate House.
BORRIS HOUSE FESTIVAL OF WRITING & IDEAS
18th – 20th September 2020
The Writers Festival is cancelled for this year due to Covid 19. The festival will take place from the 11th to 13th June 2021.
Borris House Festival of Writing & Ideas promises a weekend of stimulating dialogue and discourse, gathering together intriguing minds from all over the world. Many are writers; but artists, film-makers, musicians, people who have experienced the extraordinary, or indeed people who simply wish to change the way we do things, are there too.
We look forward to welcome those who have been before to Borris, and equally those who have heard it might well be worth surrendering a sunny weekend for. Come and spend a few days in the company of our inspiring speakers in the magnificent surroundings of Borris Village, situated at the foot of the Blackstairs Mountains with the River Barrow meandering by.
