“Friendly people, perfect for a B&B stay.”
Reviewed October 4, 2010

I'd like to counter act on the above negative review which I don't think is very fair...
as with a lot of people who use Trip Advisor, there's always one who had a bad experience with accommodation and then builds a proverbial snowball up to be a stinking avalanche.

I stayed with my wife there last Friday...
Again we were at a wedding in the Nuremore and avoiding the extortionate bedroom prices they were offering (€185 per double room)
Lisanisk was standard enough as B&B's go, but it was/is the cheapest B&Bs in the area.
Rooms were clean, food was fine and the host Rosaleen was very helpful and friendly, oh and the area dn house itself is really scenic.
It's a family run business and people are doing their level best in these tough times to make a crust as best they can.
If you do find yourself staying in Carrickmacross/Nuremore and are looking for some pocket saving yet decent genuine accomodation, I would no problem in recommending this B&B.

I stayed at Lisanisk house during the summer with my husband and 2 children for a week and found it to be a wonderful B&B. The owner Rosaleen was so friendly and accomodating. We stayed in a large clean family room with 2 queen beds and a crib for the baby and had ample room. It also had a wheelchair and stroller friendly door to outside which was great. There is a beautiful lake there and also a kids play area that the kids loved. The breakfast was good and the host made me a vegetarian breakfast instead of the traditional bacon , sausages etc which I dont eat. The only thing I was disappointed in was the lack of a decent high chair for the baby. Overall our stay was really enjoyable and we would stay there again if we return to that area.

You will not find a more hospitable, accommodating B&B in all of Ireland. All of the family members where very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the room, very comfortable and clean...and I specially enjoyed the conversations with Rosaleen. The breakfasts were delicious and the location was very convenient. This house is very professionally run and has excellent facilities.

A nightmare of an establishment - avoid at all costs. We were going to a family wedding in the nuremore hotel and about 20 family members were given details of this b & b on a list from the nuremore. We arrived to chaos, as the owner had no idea where she was putting any of us and we spent about a half an hour running up and down stairs being shown rooms and then being told that we were being put somewhere else. If only we had just left at this point but sadly we didn't. We eventually were shown a room and it was diabolical. Shoddy furnishings and terrible bathroom fittings. As we were in a rush to get to the wedding we left our bags and didn't come back until that night. we then realised how bad the rooms were. the beds felt damp and the room was cold. The bathroom fittings were unbelievable with exposed pipes and mis matched dirty towels. The bed linen didn't look too clean either.

The breakfast was a joke - cartons of juice from lidl sat on a sideboard along with cereals that were inedible. The fry was also dreadful - swimming in grease and noone ate a thing. The butter was off.

The location of this place is excellent within easy distance of nuremore hotel and sited in front of a beautiful lake. But if you are wise you will book in elsewhere.
