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!
