Well designed state of the art garden - Sky garden. Worth a visit if only for the tunnel and walking out into the light.

Arrived to Liss Ard in the hope of viewing the Sky Garden. We joined the queue and, lucky with the weather, got to walk around the grounds which are just stunning. On arrival back we had a bit of a wait so ordered a couple of coffees and were given some complimentary biscuits. The staff were friendly and helpful and... More

Not really gardens, as such... it's more about creative landscapes and atmospheric walks. The Sky Garden is most memorable.

We spent a couple of days in Liss Ard Garden, what a wonderful treat! Food, garden, tea lounge simply great. The point missing to the small rooms and rather small beds for tall people. Yet terrific place, at least have a tea on the lawn, all worth it!

These gardens are just fab. It's a super place for walks & is a fantastic place for kids. There are so many different paths to take. Been there several times but don't think I've seen it all yet. The view over the lake is beautiful and the sky garden itself is really cool. Lovely picnic spots around the place. Never... More

The gardens all the way from the road to the lake comprise of well maintained paths in mature woodland. I found the map had sparse detail. The Sky Garden is very unusual and a strange structure. There is boating on the lake for house guests. A big bonus is that the gardens are free to public for about 3 or... More
