Lismore Castle in Waterford
Lismore Castle in Waterford is a one of a kind piece 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. 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.
Each generation has lovingly and extensively restored the castle, without ever losing its historic charm. For a long time the gates were open only to a select few, but now you can rent the whole castle on an exclusive hire basis, allowing private groups to enjoy staying in a castle in Ireland in an intimate setting, attended to by the Duke’s team of personal staff. For those not looking to stay at the castle Lismore Castle Gardens is available to explore flowers and fresh lawns, and Lismore Castle Arts, a contemporary art gallery housed in the west wing, both open to the public during the summer. Lismore Estate also has one of the most coveted fisheries in Southern Ireland. Careysville Fishery is available for private fishing parties throughout the season.
The castle is available to rent on an exclusive hire basis all year round.
