Lismore Castle is situated in the heart of the magnificent Blackwater Valley and sits above the River Blackwater a truly extraordinary setting in Lismore Co Waterford . Dating back to 1170 the Castle is rich with historical detail, from the walls marked by Cromwellian cannon balls to tales from the days when it was owned by Sir Walter Raleigh.

The Estate has been in the Duke of Devonshire's family since 1753, giving the castle a distinctly personal feel while losing none of its grandeur. The luxurious bedrooms have hosted some of history's most celebrated figures, from Cecil Beaton Fred Astaire and John F Kennedy to Lucian Freud, while a spectacular collection of world-class art adorns the walls.
