Was impressed with the beauty and stillness of the estate. It was a high point of our trip and I owe it all to Mags and Aidan. Thank you for your kindness and generosity in allowing us to visit the Sky Garden.

It is a somber an moving experience to go where so many people died from starvation. It is beautifully cared for. Well done

Loved everything about this place...it is gorgeous in all seasons and a truly gracious estate with trails which wind through different habitats. The sky garden is amazing but there's admission to it, whilst the walking trails are free.

I was told by a local to visit the gardens. Main gates were open but we couldn't leave without climbing over them. Seems Liss Ard is now only open and available to people attending one of the workshops in house. Beautiful location. It's a shame...More

We decided to go a bit off the beaten track to see the sky garden. For what it was, it was impressive - even on a rainy day. Had I to do it over again I would probably forego this, as a sunny day would...More

This place is simply magical. Everything is so easy; checkin, visiting the gardens, taking the boat out onto the lake and private viewing of the stunning sky garden. The staff can't do enough for you. Make time for long walks and sitting to take in...More
