Lovely stay here. Our room was in the Mews building and although it was on the small side the furnishings and decor are of the finest quality. The food we had for dinner and again at breakfast Was excellent. They have a lovely bar which is cosy and comfortable in the main building. The staff are obliging and welcoming. There are beautiful walks and other amenities in the estate however we did not have either the weather or the time needed to explore these during our short stay.

The surroundings are delightful, but the room is tiny, and it doesn't have an aircon or the possibility to open the window inside the room, only in the bathroom. The drive to the apartments is ultra-narrow, so driving is stressful. Breakfast is excellent, but for this price per night, I would expect fresh fruits like berries or blueberries, not only apples. Also, as for dry fruits, there were only raisins and bananas, and almonds, no cranberries or other dried fruits. One last item is we were hungry, and the restaurant was closed at 7 PM. But on the positive side, they have a fantastic dog that is welcoming and gives you a tour of the sky garden.

Our family from Minnesota USA had a wonderful 1 night stay at your estate. There was a very warm welcome from Anna. The 2 rooms and breakfast were fabulous. We enjoyed walking the grounds and resting a bit at the Sky Garden. I hope to return some day in the future.

Our stay in Liss Ard Estate was just perfect. The grounds are stunning with lots of beautiful woodland paths leading out onto the lake. The manor is beautifully decorated in a mix of old and new with attention to every conceivable detail. We dined in the in house garden restaurant for breakfast and dinner. The pork main was out of this world. Breakfast was a beautiful selection of healthy options (granola, porridge) and treats (pain perdu/ French toast full Irish etc). There was nothing we ate or drank that wasn’t 10/10. The bar/lounge is cosy with plump sofas and a record player/board games to relax in front of the fire with a masterfully crafted cocktail. The rooms were incredible, we saw a lake house room and stayed in the Manor House, both were impeccably decorated and spotlessly clean. The beds are soft and cosy and impossible to get out of! Overall I cannot recommend Lisa Ard Estate highly enough. It’s a stunning property with amazing staff and delicious food.

Stayed just a couple of weeks after it reopened. Despite the hotel itself being very quiet we were given a tiny, cramped room in the mews with a huge desk that was far too large for the space- and this was billed as a redesign? The dinner was disappointing but the breakfast was good. The waitress was friendly and helpful in recommending a local beach. The overall atmosphere was lacking, however. It feels like the hotel is having an identity crisis. Also, when we tried to check out we discovered that they had put somebody else’s dinner bill onto our check and it took a ridiculously long time for them to remedy this.
