“Expectations Exceeded at Lisheen!”

In planning for a 60th birthday family holiday we discovered LIsheen Castle and questioned if it was "too good to be true?" Our party of 13 from the US ranged from 83 years old to 3 months and all of us had the vacation of a lifetime. Zane helped us arrange meals, transportation, entertainment and even a guitar soloist on the rooftop! Spacious en-suite rooms, traditionally served home cooked Irish breakfasts and dinners and plus a few rainbows and shooting stars made for a magical week at Lisheen..

Perfect location. Close to many legendary sites, and adventures. Everyday was filled with exciting things to do. 13 of us; children, teens, grown up and seniors. All loved every moment. Lisheen Castle is a story book experience. Beautiful grounds, marvelous accommodations. Zane, was a wonderful host. Treated us like family and guided us through our time there. Finally, if you want to have a beautiful memory that will last a lifetime; visit Lisheen Castle.

“Too Much Crack For One Week!”

We were a party of 13 from the U.S.A. and France and booked the entire castle under the all inclusive package. So glad we did as this package allowed us a stress free vacation. All that was required of us was to show up, and the day was planned by Zane and his staff. Can't say enough good things about the staff as they were attentive to our needs and anticipatory of them. Ursula and Sharon were our chefs providing outstanding meals. Ursula went above and beyond her position. When we had difficulty in getting to the train station it was Ursula who drove us in her own car. There were many more acts of random kindness from Ursula and other staff during the week. Zane has an excellent staff he can be proud of. Joe was our tour guide and also did double duty in keeping the whole day humming and running interference for any problems. Joe also played guitar and sang Irish songs holding all of us in the palm of his hand. A few highlights were the harpist after dinner in the castle and the outing to Chez Hans and our time with Zane. I highly recommend this place, you will not be disappointed. Come and make memories and get ready for laughter.

“Most enjoyable vacation EVER!”
Reviewed August 11, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Lisheen Castle was our home-away-from-home for one week in late July 2017. 18 of us, covering 3 generations (ages 1 to age 63) enjoyed every minute of this glorious castle and its grounds. The highlights included the outstanding staff and owner, Zane! The memories we made will stay dear forever! We recommend the full tour package, as the bus and driver were great. Our weather was perfect the entire week and we even had a double rainbow as a backdrop for our formal photos! We strongly recommend this lovely estate. The David Lance Family, Calhoun, GA USA

“Absolutely magical!”
Reviewed July 27, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

It was a dream come true for our family to stay at this castle b/c this was the actual birth place of our ancestors in the early 1900's. There is a picture hanging in the library of our grandparents and 2 oldest aunts (as children) - taken at the front of the castle. It is truly a "castle" with historical décor and modern amenities. It is centrally located for day trips. Covh, Blarney Castle, Cliffs of Moher and Galway Bay were some destinations well worth checking out.

“Magical Family Visit”
Reviewed July 17, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Out family of 12 ages 11 to 71 had a marvelous stay at Lisheen Castle. It was a pleasure working with Zane to firm up the booking and the tour itenerary. The attentiveness of the staff from the chefs and servers was very appreciated. The Irish breakfasts were fantastic and the dinners were very well done. Coach transportation was timely and flexible to our needs. Zane and company delivered an experience our family will always remember.

“Once in a lifetime experience at Lisheen Castle”
Reviewed June 8, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Sleep comes easy in the many elegant and comfortable bedrooms in Lisheen Castle. Nearly every one with a private bathroom. Your view in the mornings of rolling hills and endless countryside is a delightful way to begin. The Everard family who own & operate Lisheen Castle provided our group of 13 the perfect level of service and privacy while allowing us full access to the whole property. We especially enjoyed preparing meals together in the commercial style kitchen. Dish washer, microwave, huge fridge, commercial oven & laundry were all appreciated by our group ranging in age from 2 years old to 79. Wifi worked well and kept our young from requiring oxygen. Weather was such that we frolicked, flew kites and enjoyed tea on the patio many times. Zane, who greeted us and guided us through the property was also very helpful providing great information to guide us to local grocers, restaurants & pubs with music and sights and scenes. We are a busy group and travelled easily each day to destinations including Dublin, Cork, Cliffs of Moher, Rock of Cashel, Cobh, Kilkenny and Adare. I saw bunny rabbits every day during our time here but they we too fast to catch on camera. Highly recommend this special place.
