We have just returned from Liss Ard Estate where Arthur and his team can’t do enough for you – you really get an Irish welcome and are very well looked after. The food is fantastic, ingredients are sourced locally and cooked to perfection by Cliodhna. Meeting other guests over breakfast and after dinner coffee’s is a great change from other hotel dining rooms. Dinner and breakfast is a very pleasant, relaxed affair - you will never feel rushed in Liss Ard.
The little touches like the wellies, coats and walking sticks so you can explore the extensive grounds in all sorts of weather with the maps left in your room just prove how special a place Liss Ard really is. The Sky Garden is an amazing sight even in cloudy weather!
We stayed in great comfort in the main house in the Ha Ha room which has lovely period features with a mix of contemporary and antique furnishings, the peace and quiet is wonderful with great views over the West Cork countryside.
Liss Ard is everything and more that it says on the website – we really loved it and will be spreading the word amongst all our friends, in fact we have started already! Part of me wants to keep such a wonderful place secret so it doesn’t get over run with tourists and become just like every other hotel in Ireland.
There is something magical and very special about Liss Ard that I hope will remain when it becomes one of Ireland’s top destinations which it will become if Arthur and his team continue to give guests the Liss Ard 5 star treatment.
