Family Gatherings


Originally built in 1185 by King John and owned by the Duke of Devonshire since 1753, Lismore Castle has always been a special place for family gatherings and reunions. Impressive and elegant rooms reveal a history that also includes the Astaire, Mitford and Kennedy families.    

For generations, the castle has been the venue for many important and special family occasions - from shooting and fishing parties to wedding banquets and birthday celebrations, as well as visits from Prince Charles and many others. 

New families continue to make the history of Lismore Castle a special and important one and many return again and again for a family reunion to celebrate milestone events or to simply enjoy time together in a beautiful and historic location. 

 "The only place on earth to which we've returned again and again. We just love Lismore." (L.R.  & N.F. USA)

 “Lismore Castle vacations are the stuff that dreams are made of. The staff is expert at making one and all feel that they are at home, being cosseted and cared for like no other place I have ever been. Under the watchful eye of Mr Denis Nevin, all is done to perfection. The food is outstanding,the Castle is so very comfortable, and the whole experience is one of sheer delight.” (S.M.USA)

 “My family and I have just been lucky enough to spend an unbelievably memorable few days at Lismore… And we all had the best weekend ever. Denis and his team looked after us sensationally. We canoed, walked, ate and drank way too much, got rained on needless to say, and danced with the fantastic Booley House Group. And played an epic amount of Ping Pong and Snooker… We can’t wait to find an excuse to come back…” (A.F. UK)
