The seclusion and exclusivity that is the hallmark of Liss Ard Estate carries through from the grounds and gardens to the understated elegance of our bedrooms.
From the grandeur of the Bridal Suite in the Country House, to the detached tranquility of the Victorian Lake Lodge, to the unpretentious simplicity of the Mews, our 25 bedrooms are as varied and unique as their surroundings. Regardless of which room you’re in, you’ll appreciate that underlying quality that defines a stay at Liss Ard.
The contemporary, minimalist style of the rooms complements their restful surroundings, augmenting that feeling of escape and tranquility that begins the moment you pass through our gates. After all, at Liss Ard we understand your time with us is about more than its individual components. Your bedroom, the restaurant, the gardens and the grounds are only part of the story. What matters most is the experience: how all of these elements come together to make your stay unforgettable.
That’s the Liss Ard difference.

All our rooms come with great amenities and services. The following are just a few of the main amenities included by default with our rooms.
The Restaurant team at Liss Ard use a combined effort of individual strengths to bring you an innovative, classic menu with a modern twist. Being situated in West Cork, we are fortunate to have excellent quality Land and sea based produce, available within a 50 kilometre radius. This allows us to serve the freshest meat and fish accompanied with locally grown, in season ingredients to compliment. With an eye towards flavour, we change our menus to reflect the seasonality of our dishes. By respecting the seasonality of the ingredient, we are able to focus on each one at its peak, letting the quality and vibrant flavour naturally shine.
