“Most enjoyable vacation EVER!”
Reviewed 12 August 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 28 July 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 18 July 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 8 June 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.

“A Springtime week of Magic in Ireland”
Reviewed 15 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A few weeks ago our group of 14 friends came together to share a week with Lisheen Castle as our home and base for exploring Ireland. There is still an aura of magic for everyone, did we really live in a lovely restored castle with heaps of comfort and amenities? The setting is perfect, on the one hand quiet and rural and peaceful, yet relatively well situated for day trips to a wide variety of places. With help from owner Zane, we made contact with a local tour company and hired a private motor coach to take us on two 'must see' big day tours The Cliffs of Moher, and Dingle Peninsula.
For us, a highlight was coming together every evening, cooking together in the fully equipped kitchen, drinking plenty of wine, and enjoying sharing conversations about the different things we experienced that day. The castle encourages a wonderful camaraderie while also provides ample space to have private time to ones self.
Everything we needed was just as stated - very comfortable bedrooms, quiet, easy access to groceries and supplies, great kitchen for meal prep, a laundry, and whatever our request Zane was quick to respond. We've seen reviews "once in a lifetime..." and we've already heard friends say "maybe we will return." Springtime, while having uncertain weather was an excellent time to see Ireland without the crowds.
