We stayed here in August 2013 in one of the smaller rooms in the lake lodge for several nights. The exceptional things first: - very quiet, tranquil location - fantastic park area - good restaurant onsite - huge common areas - nicely decorated But there were sometimes problems with the service that resulted in this 4 star rating. To give... More

We stayed here around this time last year for a late Valentines weekend. What sticks in my mind is the warm welcome we received and how we were encouraged to feel at home. The food in the restaurant is fantastic - a huge choice of fresh food for breakfast (fresh breads, fruit, cold meats, cheese, fish .. i could go... More

As one of only two couples at the estate we were upgraded into a suite and given the royal treatment. The sitting rooms are stylish and individual. Very cozy, with roaring fires. Our room was amazing. The bed was fantastic and the bathroom was the size of a NYC apartment. Even though the weather limited our exploration of the expansive... More

A fantastic country house where you can use all the wonderful sitting rooms and lounges. A wide range of different bedrooms to chose from, ours stylish with a lovely comfortable bed. The estate is great to view on the freely supplied bikes, and if you want to canoe on the lovely lake these are available too. The restaurant was very... More

Don't go there on a Sunday in May. We toured Ireland, booking accommodation and dinners through an agency. We spent two nights at Liss Ard, mid May, in two rooms of the splendid Country House. The water failed at 6.15 pm just as we were going through the shower. The only information in the room was a 'welcome' letter which... More

My boyfriend and I have recently visited Liss Ard and throughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in a Garden Mews room which was great - a lovely room with a back door out to a small garden area. The main house was next door which guests are free to use to watch TV and borrow picnic blankets, wellies etc, and... More
