The house is used for dignatories when they visit Ireland. During the past few years Farmleigh has played host to a number of State visits including Queen Elizabeth II, the Hon. Dame Silvia Cartwright, their Majesties King Harald V and Queen Sonja of Norway and the President of the Republic of Poland Mr. Lech Kaczynski in addition to a large range of Government functions.
The house and gardens run a number of events and is well worth a visit. Check out their website for the 2013 programme
