Lismore Castle & Gardens

Lismore Castle & Gardens

Lismore Castle has been the Irish home of the Dukes of Devonshire since 1753 and is one of the most spectacular castles in Ireland. Situated in a panoramic position overlooking the Blackwater Valley it has views over rolling, wooded hills to the Knockmealdown Mountains beyond.

To the South, the Heritage Town of Lismore is a mere two minute walk away. When the Duke and his family are not staying the castle is available to hire, fully staffed. The historic gardens at Lismore Castle are divided into two very different halves.

The Upper Garden is a complete example of the 17th century walled garden first constructed here by Richard Boyle, the 1st Earl of Cork, in about 1605. The outer walls and terraces remain and the plantings have changed to match the tastes of those living within the Castle.

The Lower Garden was mostly made in the 19th century for the 6th Duke of Devonshire, Joseph Paxton's patron. This garden is informal with shrubs, trees and lawns, and the stately Yew Avenue is much older, perhaps from the 17th century
