Lismore Castle, Ireland

Description

Lismore Castle, Waterford, Ireland

Lismore is a privately owned castle offering luxury accommodation on an exclusive hire basis.

Fabulous reception rooms, 15 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms. All individually designed and beautifully appointed.

Lismore Castle in Waterford, Ireland, is a one of a kind and a repository of extraordinary history: from walls marked by Cromwellian cannon balls to the days it was owned by Sir Walter Raleigh -the man who brought potatoes and tobacco to Ireland – to Cecil Beaton, Lucian Freud, Fred Astaire and JFK, all of whom slept a night or more in this private castle on the banks of the River Blackwater.

The castle dates from 1170, yet there is no shortage of modern luxuries: ensuite bathrooms, a cinema room, Wi-Fi throughout the castle and much more. It sleeps 8 to 12 in an intimate environment or up to 27 for a bigger party. Larger events are also possible and all are attended by the family’s private staff, led by Denis Nevin, the castle’s Butler for the last 35 years.

World-class art — contemporary and Old Masters — hangs from walls, while the Pugin Banqueting Hall is a major historic treasure in its own right. Every detail is a masterpiece of good taste, presided over by the Duke of Devonshire’s family for whom this luxury castle in Ireland remains a private home.

Lismore Castle is conveniently located close to many excellent opportunities for activities and excursions and our concierge team will be happy to advise and make all the necessary arrangements.
