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

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

The main country house is so comfortable and invitng and somehow they have managed to balance the beautiful furnishings and fine art work bringing some moments where u feel like you''re in a museum or gallery! It is like a seperate hideway in itself with a massive lake and extensive forest and grounds. The row boat on the lake was... More

Liss Ard Estate formed the last part of our tour of west Cork and it was the perfect way to wind down and prepare for the return to reality. The day we arrived the sun was splitting the rocks and it showed off the the beautifully maintained grounds and the main house in the best possible light but we were... More

We have just come back from a one night stay at Lissard which we thoroughly enjoyed! We were able to bring our dog and have her stay in the room with us (which was the main reason we booked). We stayed in one of the garden mews. The room was lovely and bright with a door leading out to gorgeous... More
