Beautiful gardens. Liss Ard has not only nice gardens but also a nice little cafe. It's a wonderful pace to visit on a nice warm day. Ask for the key for the Sky Garden which is amazing. Lay on the stone and look at the blue sky. So many walks around these grounds that you couldn't possibly do them all... More

'Magical' is a word to describe Liss Ard Gardens in particular the Sky Garden. The Crater is a wonderful creation, entered through a short passage, and equipped with a stone slab on which one can lie contemplating the sky and reflecting and contemplating. The experience has been described as one of space, perception and peacefulness

We enjoyed our visit here but a few more directions would have been helpful. We arrived and parked in the car park, only to find there was another one closer to the gardens (no problem as quite a nice walk but it would have been good to know so we could choose). There was a map at the entrance to... More

We visited Liss ard this week it is absolutely beautiful Lovely gardens, lake and walks. We were staying very close to it and went twice as there was so much to see. Best of all ...it's free!! Other than the 'sky garden' which you have to pay five euro to get the key.

A wonderful garden, trees ancient & young. The Sky Garden is interesting...must be great on a clear night. Walks bring you to the lake - beautiful! Great for West Cork!

We spend a lot of time in Clonakilty especially during the summer but in the past 11 years we never visited these gardens until a friend recently recommended them. We visited these wonderful gardens and enjoyed a few hours talking a leisurely stroll as there are a vast array of walks to do. You can bring your dog along for... More
