Hidden Gem of West Cork

What a lovely place!!! the Grounds are huge with so much to discover and enjoy. Hotel has its very own lake with wood burning sauna (a must). Treatments are to die for, equally the food.

All the staff bring a genuine sense of true hospitality. Very professional, very helpful.
Rooms are amazing, and recently renovated, which adds a little touch of class and luxury

Secret escape

When we arrived we were greeted with a lovley glass of Prosecco. Our room was newly refurbished, clean and the bed was comfy. Our room also had a great coffee machine ! We dined in the restaurant and I must say it was the best culinary experience we have had in a while. Despite the bad weather we got to walk the beautiful grounds and came back to a lovely warm fire in the library.
We will be returning !

5 stars for food, hospitality and comfort!

We had a beautiful stay here in Lissard Estate. The staff were all so accommodating and friendly and did everything they could to ensure we had a pleasant stay. The food was also incredible - everything was so fresh and sourced locally. Lots of lovely nature walks available too. Not to mention, the rooms were gorgeous - so comfortable, warm and had everything we needed! We will 100% be back to stay here again. Absolutely loved it (as did our dog!)
