Liss Ard Estate
This Victorian fishing lodge was completely revamped in the 1990s when its Austrian owners bought it and gave it an Oriental style makeover. Heavily influenced by Japanese design, you can expect top-quality furnishings, bamboo walls, clean lines and simple colours.
Lis Ard Estate is two minutes from Skibbereen town centre. Skibbereen is a town in West Cork, Ireland, often referred to as the heart of West Cork due to its proximity and centre stage to all the action. It is the most southerly town in Ireland. Located just one hour away from Corks Airport.
Lis Ard Estate boasts a variety of luxury accommodation to suit all tastes and holidaying needs. The entire accommodation on the Estate is twenty five bedrooms and includes the splendour of the six-bedroom Country House with adjacent 9-bedroom Garden Mews, and located close by on a separate part of the estate, the Lake Lodge with reception rooms framing breath taking views of the lake and ten Zen-like bedrooms.
Its modern facilities make Lis Ard Estate a favourite for business conferences as it is an ideal retreat from the outside world. It is also a great family property – there are plenty of activities locally and the estate makes it a safe setting for children to explore and enjoy. For older children the town is five minutes’ away. Golf, cycling, kayaking, fishing and tennis are all available on the estate or within 15 minutes, and the rugged cliffs and stunning seascapes of the Atlantic coast are within five miles of the house.
