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

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

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
