Well designed state of the art garden - Sky garden. Worth a visit if only for the tunnel and walking out into the light.

Not really gardens, as such... it's more about creative landscapes and atmospheric walks. The Sky Garden is most memorable.

We spent a couple of days in Liss Ard Garden, what a wonderful treat! Food, garden, tea lounge simply great. The point missing to the small rooms and rather small beds for tall people. Yet terrific place, at least have a tea on the lawn, all worth it!

The view over the lake is beautiful and the sky garden itself is really cool. Lovely picnic spots around the place. Never... More
