Beautiful location, stunning grounds and lots of woodland walks. The sky garden is an unusual structure but well worth a look- a man-made 'dish' that you enter through a tunnel and lay down to look at the sky. Very tranquil. Room was comfortable, clean and spacious. Very quiet. Dinner in the restaurant was superb. Staff very attentive and food quite... More

We planned to stay here for 2 nights and we were very excited as this was the end of our holiday in West Cork. We were in awe of the beautiful main house and the very friendly and helpful staff. Then we were brought to the room (outside of the main house) We were shocked! The surfaces and floors were... More

Amazing place. The gardens are idyllic. There is somewhere new to explore at every turn. You can take a rowing boat or canoe out on the lake. Room was small but had everything you needed. Breakfast was lovely and you choose off a menu. The receptionist, Adele, was so accommodating. She booked restaurants and recommended places.

Many of the reviews of Liss Ard are very good. It is possible that we were just unlucky but we came away dejected. Liss Ard was the most expensive part of our 12 day trip around West Clare and West Cork and it was the most disappointing part. Check-in was pleasant and friendly. We had a lovely big bedroom in...

If you're into exploring and excellent food - this is the place for you. Mr Fromage and I headed down with a Blue Book voucher from our wedding, and had planned a trip around West Cork and onto Killarney. Even from when I booked (1 night Dinner B&B) the service was very good. Email arrived asking what time we wanted... More

An oasis of calm and beauty. Spent two nights with accommodation in the Garden Mews. Top class service and food at breakfast and dinner. Memorable white chocolate dessert! Delightful gardens and walks. Warm and welcoming staff.

It cannot be denied, the grounds are beautiful and quirky. The Sky Garden is a wonderful feature (unique). We stayed in the lake lodge for one night. We were brought out from reception, by a very friendly woman, to the lodge. The restaurant was closed unfortunately, during our stay (which I found surprising in the middle of July). We left...

We ended up staying here purely by chance and it was an extremely pleasant surprise. Staff are great, the old house is charming, tastefully modernized and pristine. The grounds of the house are truly stunning, you could easily spend several days just wondering the grounds and relaxing. Breakfast was great, the eggs florentine were delicious - if only they had...
