Repeat visit - I really am becoming a creature of habit. Very little changed since the last time except apparently due to implosion in miracle Irish economy the hotel now shuts over the winter months and only reopens at Easter.
This works well for visitors though because rates have been slashed (55 Euros for a family room at beginning of June) - breakfast extra.
Finally, for the first time in years, it was sunny for our entire trip. Lismore town is beautiful, historic castle (Duke of Devonshire's - you know that bloke who owns Chatsworth House, him - Irish seat doncha know) right on your doorstep. That Boyle chap - you remember, Boyle's Law from Chemistry? Discovered right here.
Nice park and kids play area right across the street. A couple of good eateries up the hill - Foley's in particular, offer good - excellent and reasonably priced meals. Town full of pubs. Great location for fishing - get permits (and gear) in Cappoquin.
Heaps to see and do locally. Not one but two (count 'em) cathedrals.
I should work for the Lismore Tourist Board.More
