“1 Week Stay in June”
Reviewed 25 January 2017 for a stay in June 2015

I was so in love with Lisheen Castle! We were invited to stay for the week as guests for a wedding that took place here. The rooms, the grounds, the cozy dining room where we gathered for breakfast… Perhaps, especially, the sunroom looking over the garden. It has been beautifully restored and I feel lucky to have been a guest here!

“Lisheen Castle is a beautiful place in the heart of Ireland, set in wonderful gardens with great views.”
Reviewed 28 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had a wonderful two week stay here with twelve pals, wandering to all kinds of great sites: Cliffs of Moher, Kilkenny, Dublin, Yeats country and more. The Castle is extremely comfortable with lovely rooms for gathering, a large and elegant dining room with delicious local delicacies. Fun times on the roof top, quiet walks in the countryside. And always, a view of the Devil's Bite! We all loved it. And Zane, our host, was always attentive.

“Just an amazing experience!”
Reviewed 26 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Beautiful castle in an amazing setting. The scenery is gorgeous! The grounds were perfectly manicured. The castle is beautiful on the inside as well. The restoration is unbelievable considering it was once in rubble. The rooms are plentiful, all with their own titles and most their bathrooms as well. The decor is historic and beautiful but comfortable at the same time. Equipped with modern conveniences such as washer/dryer, restaurant style kitchen and wifi throughout. Zane is a very gracious host, he even took us on the roof. Shhhh:) He was also extremely helpful in guiding us to local restaurants and attractions. I'm so glad we didn't choose the B&B hop thing. This was truly a once in a lifetime experience for me and my family!

“A splendid holiday in a storybook setting.”
Reviewed 22 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Lisheen is a castle but also a warm and inviting place--a wonderful host and an attentive and solicitous staff to look after you. Great food. And it is a short distance from all of the major attractions in the south of Ireland. We didn't want to drive so Zane Everard put us in touch with a service [Glasheen Coaches] that collected us and drove us everywhere. Bliss. Don't hesitate to book Lisheen and enjoy!

“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed 22 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Stayed in late September 2016 with group of friends. We found the castle to be in a perfect location for daily outings. The castle itself was exactly what the website said it would be. Rooms were spacious and the grounds were beautiful. We are all looking to return!
