We stayed at Liss Ard House in late August '18 and found it an absolutely amazing experience.
The attention to detail was second to none and we were made feel so welcome from the moment we arrived.

The beautiful seclusion of the drive from the gate lodge to the main house was a

My husband and I booked a romance package, but my husband was not feeling well before we arrived. The hospitality shown to us was nothing short of legendary. I came to the dining room solo, and multiple people checked in with me to be sure I was OK. The food was of outstanding

I don't know who wrote this review but it is not reflective of our experience . We all had a superb experience but would recommend they improve the accessibility for those who have disabilty problems like my brother Declan . I'm really amazed at this n garage review . It's like we stayed at different places .
I am aware that the Manager of the Liss Ard Estate has recently changed. I can only report from my own previous stays in Liss Ard at the Lake Lodge (not the main house). I have brought groups to the Lake Lodge for weekend retreats and have always received a very warm welcome and great service from the previous Manager Ariane and her team. I'm saddened to read that others have not been able to experience Liss Ard the way we have, it really is a very magical place!

I'm amazed at the negativity of this review . We had an amazing stays or our sons wedding. The staff were brilliant . I'm wondering if there was a problem with a Monday arrival after an intensive weekend ?
"The hotel has a peaceful aspect our room had a view over the garden and lake. I would imagine all accommodation types to be tranquil."
"We stayed in Pine and Beech. Both rooms were fabulous, with great views. If you can afford it the main Suite 'Cedar' is fabulous !!"
"We had the honeymoon suite and it was large and had lovely views"
"You have a ten minute walk through the woods to the main house for dinner/breakfast which might not suit everyone though we loved it."
"The front of the house overlooks the gardens and lake"
