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.

The Heritage Centre has the excellent Castle Experience. So well produced, great 3D visuals. Great narration and great presence of the actors. The Centre has a relaxing seating area for tea, coffee right beside a wide range of books both local and history. What better than a book browse before going into the Castle Experience. Great feature is the personal guide to talk you through first. The castle experience is definitely worth a visit.

Our lovely "landlady" at our rental home told us about this awesome place. Since you can't go into Lismore Castle, they have created a virtual experience that actually makes you feel as if you are in the castle. It starts with a chat by Sir Walter Raleigh (original owner) and moves forward through history. You actually feel as if you are in the bedroom where JFK slept, as well as the living room, ball room, kitchen etc. Don't miss this if you are in the area!

We stopped in for a much needed end of cycle ride tea and cake close to 4 on Saturday, staff were brilliant,so friendly and helpful, and no pressure at all even though it was for them close to the end of a long shift. Divorce may have been on the cards if we had missed you, but no such luck! Thanks again and enjoy the rest of the summer.
