This is really a piece of art and very unusual. So well designed. Sound is muffled within the circle. Very calming place.

Many hidden discoveries await you in the woods. Look for Seat of the Talking Stones and Celtic Meeting Place on your way to the lake, and experience the Sky Garden for a once-in-a-lifetime experience: "See what's on the slab" ;)

Visiting the Sky Garden is by appointment only. It's a weird experience, it frames the sky. It is a sculpture of light. The real highlight of the gardens is the native woodlands around it though and the always-lovely Lough Abisdealy ... but then I'm a bit biased. I lived there for a few years so it has lots of emotional memories for me. It is a lovely place and you won't forget it. On a good sunny day in the summer, walk through the arboretum.

A magical visit for the whole family to James Turrell’d skyspace. The setting is wonderful set in the beautiful wooded landscape. The peace was incredible inside the crater. The sensations and light a day to remember. The Liss Ard Estate were very welcoming

Wow!! It is an amazing experience to lie on the stone staring into the sky and having it consistently change whilst the silence envelops you..one of my best experiences and as wecwere guests of the hotel we could pop along whenever we wanted..☆☆Note- steps up to the garden are very steep with no rails // You lock the gate after you so you can experience the garden privately so if you can't get in please consider someone is already in there enjoying the serenity :-)

We could not believe to find a master piece of famed artist James Turrell out here in rural West Cork. Please treat with respect and don’t ruin it for future generations as it’s not a playground to run up and slide down as this has been pointed out to us that others have done that. Must be exhausting to maintain, well done maintenance crew

Do not forget to buy a ticket, linked to a time slot, to visit the Sky Garden. Tickets can be bought at reception. Once your time slot comes up, you can pick up the key at the reception, have about 25 minutes to visit the Sky Garden after which you lock up again and bring key back to reception for the next one. As such, you can enjoy the Sky Garden all by yourself. Unless you book a room at this resort, than guests can get hold of the key to enjoy viewings after 5 o'clock (or perhaps even at night). I feel sorry though for the garden maintenance guys (e.g. Aidan) who has to mow this lawn.

We came to the area specific to see the gardens, only to find out it was not open. Only on specfic days and they alternate. It is advertised in the tourist guides as being open, but nope. Rang the number on the gate, person other end was rude in saying closed. Even locals could not tell you when it was open. Good luck to who ever wishes to visit. It does look spectacular through the brochers though.

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.
