Group visits to Springhill
Groups can take a step back in history on a visit to Springhill, often referred to as one of the most unique 17th-century Plantation homes in Ireland. Discover everything you need to know about bringing your group to Springhill.
Guided tours explore the ten generations of the Lenox-Conyngham family, 17th-century furniture and family portraits. In addition, groups can enjoy visiting the renowned Costume Museum, which features a range of items dating from the 18th century. The gardens and grounds at Springhill are also to be admired with a stunning rose garden and woodland walks which provide stunning views of the Sperrin Mountains.
Free familiarisation visits for group leaders
If you're planning a group visit you can request our free Travel Trade Pass and you and a friend or colleague will gain free entry to over 300 of our places throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland for 12 months. There’s nothing quite like seeing or experiencing somewhere for yourself to help you plan a successful visit. To receive your pass, call 0344 800 2329 or email us at NTTravelTrade@capita.co.uk.
Who is eligible for free entry?
Registered tourist board guides (on production of a valid badge), coach drivers and tour leaders escorting groups of 15 or more. National Trust members also receive free entry, so it is at your discretion whether to refund the entrance fee to members if you have included it in your package – this is not refunded by the National Trust.
Members must bring their current membership cards with them to avoid paying the full group rate. If any of your group would like to join the National Trust please direct them to our Membership page or call 0344 800 1895.
