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

This the second time Ive been here and I was with the kids this time. I was not expecting much as the kids can be hard work when it comes to having a walk. I was proved wrong, they loved it. It is a magical place and the kids got sucked in straight away. They both ran for about an... More

As admission to the grounds is free you don't mind paying for this... More

Liss Ard has a lot to offer in the amount of trails available within its boundary. Sit by the various ponds or meander through the natural habitat, visit the amazing sky gardens and all free. Relax with a coffee in the country house. Well worth a visit.
