Exclusive Castle Hire in Ireland - Lismore Castle

Family Gatherings

Lismore Castle has always been a place for family gatherings. For generations, the castle has been used for fishing trips, birthday celebrations — where guests can curl up by the fireplace, take afternoon tea in the Drawing Room or dine on a multicourse feast in our Banquet Hall. The tradition has been alive for centuries — Lismore has been owned by the Duke of Devonshire’s family since 1753.

The family still uses Lismore as his private home for much of the year, giving the castle a personal, lived-in feel, while maintaining the authenticity of this 800-year old building. 

 But Lismore’s history is still growing. New families — friends of friends recommending Lismore as a place they love — are coming to celebrate anniversaries and milestone birthdays, host reunions and parties, or simply enjoy time together in this iconic and dramatic setting.

 “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)
