My husband and I stayed in the garden mews, across the courtyard from the main house. The room was just ok, there was only one chair, the bath, shower and toilet were behind a thin screen which you pulled back. I prefer a separate bathroom. The hot water in the shower was luke warm on the first morning and would...

My husband and I had a brilliant stay here and it was a wonderful experience especially a visit to the sky garden which has to be seen to be believed, no description could do it full justice. We also very much enjoyed our ramble through the woodlands further enhanced by the warm sunshine. The house itself is magnificent, a real...

We'd stayed in Liss Ard once before, in 2013, and loved it - good food, relaxed atmosphere and beautiful surroundings. It was expensive but worth it. On this visit, a lot had changed. The causal upstairs bistro was replaced by a basement formal dining room - very old school decor and menu that simply was not good value. Food was...

Recently spent three nights here for a family wedding and I couldn't fault a single thing! Liss Ard offers the most beauful gardens which you could loose yourself in exploring. I stayed in the Lodge which was located right on the lake. it offers the perfect opportunity to escape from reality to sit in peace with breathtaking views. Aside from...

We stayed at this beautiful place for a night whilst attending a wedding that was held there. It is a lovely place in a great setting. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I look forward to going back for a longer stay. It is perfect for a wedding.

There are lots of things to do in Cork, for every taste and age, but if you would like to do something that quietly stays with you, take the time to visit Liss Ard. The house , which has an odd lay out, has been done up rather than restored, so it is bright and clean, but not elegant or...

They could not do enough for us. Great breakfast as well. Adele assisted finding us a day night room which saved our stay. Do not miss. Lake cottages are just great, but be advised that meals bar etc are up in the main noise.

Fantastic hotel - hidden gem. So tranquil and peaceful. Staff lovely and friendly. Five star service with a smile. Nothing too much trouble. We had dinner in the restaurant - fine dining without all the 'stuffiness' that usually comes with it. Only a few minutes drive from Skibereen. We had a fantastic experience in Liss Ard and hope to return....

Beautiful Irish manor estate house. All rooms are tastefully decorated with a homely touch. Dinner was delicious and service second to none. We’d highly recommend the pea & crab soup for starter along with Beef Wellington for main. A visit to the Sky Garden is a must as is a boat trip out on the lake. Special word of thanks...
