We stayed for two nights in August and had a wonderful time. The staff are exceptional, and the food out of this world. It was an excellent base to explore Skibbereen and the local countryside. We will be back.

This country house hotel did not disappoint. Beautiful setting, fabulous room and grounds, friendly staff, fantastic restaurant . The estate is magnificent with lots of walks. Great for couples and kids too. We wanted to stay longer.

I haven't been a resident at this hotel although I have visited the gardens many times and recently we went to the restaurant in the evening as a family of four. The service was good and professional, the food was delicious and the surroundings were beautiful. The meal itself was presented in a very modern style, the chef is very... More

Just spent 8 wonderful nights in the Liss Ard lodge. Fantastic 10 minute ramble every morning through the woods to the main house for breakfast. Great breakfasts and then down to the lake for a trip in the Canadian canoe. Our five year old thought it as fantastic as we paddled through the reeds and lily flowers. Even saw an... More

Having originally book for a lake-side room, we opted to stay in the house which was a good choice in the end. We had a fabulous stay in this country house hidden away. The girls were lovely and made a special genuine effort to make use feel most welcome.The room was very clean and cozy. The breakfast was good and... More

We just had a three night stay at Liss Ard. Unfortunately the weather was not the best but this is a wonderful place to stay if you are looking for some serious relaxation, fresh air, woodland walks and lake based activities. The hotel itself has a real charm, mixing the old and the modern successfully. The food too is very... More

It's not easy planning a driving tour of Ireland for 14, when you know a good location, a great meal and secure parking is required. The Liss Ard Estate was a great find and from our welcome on arrival to that on our departure we were made to feel most welcome. We all had excellent rooms in the main house... More

Our experience was not good, we arrived on a tuesday after a very long drive and wanted nothing else but a rest peace and quiet and a meal without driving, but restaurant not open Monday or Tuesday. A nice treatment perhaps, no therapists on site but they can phone and get one to the house. Room comfortable but with a... More

Liss Ard exceeded our expectations handsomely. Delightful and uplifting accommodation, surroundings and food. Throw in the lake, Sky Garden [don't miss!], grounds, modern art and chilled vibe and you have the perfect recipe for a great break.

We went for dinner at Lis Ard Estate as non residents and it was delicious . We often go for fabulous walks at Lis Ard as it is open to the public so we decided we would try the restaurant. We had lovely pre dinner drinks in the modern sitting room before having a delicious three course dinner with excellent... More
