Amazing grounds. Great for a Sunday stroll with friends. The crator and the sky garden were definitely the highlight!

For all the reviews that say this is amazing and surreal etc., they must be on something, as it is a crater with two slabs to lie on and contemplate - biggest load of rubbish I have heard. It's a man made structure and very bland at that, that is why there are toeholds at the far end where people... More

I try and visit Liss Ard every week as I live really close. It's such a beautiful place with great walks. The sky garden is just amazing! On a sunny day it's especially gorgeous - definitely worth a visit :-)

The gardens are extensive and beautiful. You could spend an entire day here. Free to park and wander. The only thing letting it down was the poor signage both outside and in the gardens. Wanted to visit the Sky Garden only to discover its shut on Fridays. Only mention to this was a sign on our way out of Liss... More

First of all, be aware before you visit Liss Ard that this is not an attraction set up with day visitors in mind: it is a hotel / estate and function venue which outsiders can visit at the owner/operator's convenience, and a lot of the time it doesn't appear to be very convenient at all. The restaurant and tearoom are... More

This was a high light for the children as well as the adults, amazing gardens, especially the Sky garden. I could have spent the day here, as every area was so unique

When visiting Skibbereen I used the gardens of Liss Ard for my daily walk and with over 200 acres to explore this was an enjoyable experience with a great variety of things to see

I can't give any higher than 1 star because two times I have tried to visit the Sky Gardens they have been closed. The first time was in March when the whole place was closed for works, although there was nothing on the website about this. The second time the gates were open but when we went to see the... More

Very pleasant walks through gardens and woodlands by a scenic a quiet lake. The "crater" is an amazing feature and, although not easy to find is well worthwhile
