Castle to stay in Ireland

Lismore Castle in Waterford, Ireland, is a one of a kind and a repository of extraordinary history: from walls marked by Cromwellian cannon balls to the days it was owned by Sir Walter Raleigh -the man who brought potatoes and tobacco to Ireland - to Cecil Beaton, Lucian Freud, Fred Astaire and JFK, all of whom slept a night or more in this private castle on the banks of the River Blackwater.

The castle dates from 1170, yet there is no shortage of modern luxuries: ensuite bathrooms, a cinema room, wifi throughout the castle and much more.  It sleeps 8 to 12 in an intimate environment or up to 27 for a bigger party.  Larger events are also possible and all are attended by the family’s private staff, led by Denis Nevin, the castle's Butler for the last 35 years. 

World-class art — contemporary and Old Masters — hangs from walls, while The Pugin Banqueting Hall is a major historic treasure in its own right. Every detail is a masterpiece of good taste, presided over by the Duke of Devonshire’s family, for whom this luxury castle in Ireland remains a private home. 

The castle is available to rent on an exclusive hire basis all year round. For more information and booking, register here for access to our private site or contact us:
