A unique way to have an immersive experience of Lismore Castle. The real interiors are combined with re enacted scenes and famous persons who visited in the past. The staff are really lovely, welcoming and knowledgeable. We happened to visit on a day when the 360 experience was free for adult visitors. We enjoyed it so much that we have returned since with our family and found that children are free all the time. An extra bonus to a highly recommended experience!

The 360 tour experience was a brilliant idea ,its brings one into Lismore Castle and very well done to Gearoid our initial guide.A swivel position would be more exciting and you would feel more comfortable. The costume room was such fun and would almost go back for that alone.we got a most friendly welcome from all the staff and they add greatly to the visit and we're also most informative about Lismore Town. The Valults Cafe next door is not to be missed and the Ladies working in Cafe were so so pleasant. May I suggest on reference to towns associated with Richard Boyle that Bandon or Bandon Bridge be added to talk( George Bennett History Of Bandon).Best of luck to Lismore in this year's Tidy Towns competition, the place looked fantastic.Robin Turnbull and Friends

Omg what a fantastic experience I don't think I have enjoyed anything more in a very long time from the moment we were met by the tour guide Sheena who was personable and knowledge in such a relaxed and warm atmosphere, the 360 tour was just so Wonderful and I felt we were taken back in time ,I would highly recommend this tour for everyone wow ,thank you so much Sheena.We then proceeded to the heritage centre where we made some wonderful purchases at a very reasonable price,my friend who was visiting from Texas USA 🇺🇸 was very impressed.

Good place to go for advice on touring,. The 360 degree virtual visit to Lismore Castle was most enjoyable. Clean toilets.

This was so much fun for everyone including the child who couldn't stay on his seat. It's not long so children won't get bored, but it's very well done.

Our group done the VR tour today. Gearoid was our guide. Friendly and knowledgeable about Lismore and the castle. The VR experience it’s self was excellent. Would highly recommend it. Only suggestion made by a member of our group was a swivel seat ☺️ But I look forward to doing this tour again.
10/10 well done

We went to the Heritage Centre to view the new Lismore Castle Experience, Alice brought us through to the start of it and explained as we went along it was absolutely brilliant! what a way to see inside the Castle and the rooms! I won't spoil it by writing it here but IT is a MUST DO when you go to Lismore!! The Staff all super friendly and they have a great gift shop there for you to take away some souvenirs of your trip.
