Beautifully Restored Irish Castle - Pure Luxury
We welcome you to enjoy with us a piece of our history; the Castle of Lisheen, standing sentry among the rolling green hills of Munster since the early 18th Century.
This historic Irish castle has been lovingly restored by the Everard family, and was re-opened in the year 2000 as a unique luxury accommodation option for the most discerning of guests. Remaining true to the original vision of the castle, we have researched in detail the architectural and interior design of the historic castle structure. Every piece of furniture, light fitting, window and floor covering has been sourced, selected or specially manufactured for Lisheen Castle. The result is a stunning fusion of the grandeur of times past and the luxury of modern four-star accommodation.

The highest quality antique furniture has been coupled with modern conveniences you would expect of such a high-end property.

The castle's formal reception rooms; the drawing and dining rooms, both feature hand-painted murals on original vaulted Norman ceilings from which hang impressive antique chandeliers.

The formal dining room seats 16 people in extravagant old world style, while the traditional Irish kitchen offers a cozy informal dining area. A fully equipped professional kitchen is available for your use, or we can organize a catering team on request.

Lisheen Castle was such a great find! It's centralized location in southern Ireland was perfect for touring different parts of the country. The grounds were perfectly maintained, and the perks of the Castle can't be beat! All in our party had their own bedroom and bathroom for starters. And while we didn't make much use of the formal dining and sitting rooms, they were absolutely gorgeous. Each night, we gathered in the kitchen and dining area off of the kitchen for wine, cheese and dinner--many interesting conversations were had! Zane and his family have done a wonderful job with the renovations to Lisheen, and Zane added a special touch to our stay with his assistance at every turn (he even downloaded a workout program for me so that I could attempt to workout on my vacation!) While Lisheen Castle is a bit off the beaten path, it is well worth the drive right outside of Thurles for this fabulous accomodation. I highly, highly recommend staying at Lisheen Castle, and upon my future return to Ireland, I plan to do so!

Not only was it more than I expected, Zane was there to assist in whatever our needs were. Even if it was where to buy groceries. The breakfast room off the kitchen was just perfect, we were 12 in our group and it was the meeting place at night for dinner. We shared stories at that time. The bedrooms were great, having a bathroom just feet away in each bedroom made it that much more private. We left the windows open at night in our bedroom and with the night time temperature being around 50 degrees, it made sleeping in those comfortable beds more enjoyable. I highly recomend staying here at Lisheen over any other in the area, it was close to other historic places and golf courses. If you are a golfer, play Old Head, the most beautiful golf course I've ever seen and just a little over an hours drive from Lisheen. I would go back to Lisheen tomorrow if possible and when I go back to Ireland, my stay will only be at Lisheen Castle. What a great place!
