stayed for 2 night stay last week on B&B basis in the lake lodge. Upon arriving the receptionist was very friendly and the owners son drove us down to the lodge. Lodge is set in a beautiful setting over looking the lake. The accomodation is stunning and very comfortable. TV, fridge, tea making facilities in the room. Seperate shower and...

I called ahead a few days before our visit, because my boyfriend's 30th birthday was the night of our stay. I asked would they be able to have a small pavlova as a surprise waiting in our room when we arrived and they were kind enough to do just that! I was very impressed and relieved to have had this...

My husband and I spent two nights at Liss Ard the weekend just past. We were staying in the Lake Lodge on a B & B basis (the Lake Lodge is, for the most part, used by self-catering guests I gather). The gardens of Liss Ard are beautiful and open to the public. The serenity of the location is truly...

This place is truly magical. We stayed here for two nights at a room in the lake lodge. The bedroom was lovely - the perfect size for us and our two dogs. The lodge is in a very picturesque location sitting amongst the forest overlooking the lake. We made good use of the shared kitchen each afternoon, making coffees to...

The Staff couldn't do enough for you. Rooms were immaculate. The only thing that spoilt the day was the rain but that wasn't any ones fault. The grounds were amazing it's a shame the weather was bad. It was a big Hotel I would definitely recommend it

A group of 4 of us (all adults) had dinner in the restaurant and we were very disappointed. It was nothing more than expensive carvery! Main courses consisted of a single plate with a very small amount of meat / fish of choice (from a selection of about 4) and shared vegetables that could scarcely be called side dishes -...

My husband took me here as a surprise for my 40th birthday last week. We stayed at the Lake Lodge, which has private double rooms with a shared kitchen and living areas etc We didn't realise that it was a shared house until we arrived, though it is fabulous and the views are gorgeous. There was no wifi however and...

Excellent reception by the first member of staff we encountered. Throughout our stay the outstanding aspect was the courtesy and care shown by every member of staff. If only all hotels could be the same. Our room in the main house was comfortable but it needed the manager to stay in it for one night to make a note of...

We stayed here for 1 night for a friend's wedding and I wish we could have stayed longer!! We had a double room and it was the most spacious, stylish and comfortable room I have ever stayed in. Massive bed! The service was superb from start to finish; the staff were without exception friendly, polite and extremely helpful. The food...

We just want to thank all in Liss Ard for the wonderful stay we had there last week (Wed) as part of our honeymoon in gorgeous West Cork. It is a beautiful place to stay and we thoroughly enjoyed the surrounds and beautiful food, Special mention to Brita and the chef on the night who had arranged a surprise bottle...
