Lovely stroll through historic woodland. Steeped in history. A great way to build up an appetitive before tea and cakes in the Summer house.

One of the must do (short) walks near Lismore, Co Waterford. This is a great wee walk that adults and children can enjoy. It runs anti-clockwise around a woodlands park that was to be the grand entrée to a 'Big House' that ran out of money because of the 'follies' of the gatehouses that now provide the jaw-drop experience of...

the towers are not far from lismore just look for parking lot on right side as you leave town. lismore does have a castle but only grounds are open to public.lismore offers a couple nice nature walks besides the towers. Killarney is a tourist trap.This is not.

Did have some problems finding the place as the signs in Lismore are very small and not ideal when people driving behind you. Once you get there all worries and cares go. The walk is not too bad for someone with health problems if you follow the trail to the towers rather than the lodge. The woods are very old... More

You know you' in trouble when the top attraction listed on Waterford tourist signs is Lismore Castle 40 minutes away. Waterford itself is a big disappointment after all the charming Irish towns with only the crystal factory tour to recommend it. Lismore is a small town that must have had potential at one point, however, most of the stores in... More
