Why Stay At Lismacue House

Travelers feel like contented houseguests at this five-bedroom estate, originally built in 1655, with opulent interiors and idyllic countryside views.

The Scoop

A family-owned estate for 306 years, the privately rented Lismacue House is a well-maintained Georgian country home on 200 green acres in Tipperary, Ireland. Travelers arrive via a lime tree-lined driveway and are greeted at the home's grand entrance by proprietor Kate Nicholson, whose family has owned the grounds since 1704. Personalized service continues from there, from tea and scones by a roaring fire upon arrival to after-dinner liqueurs every evening. The five guest rooms have antique furnishings and views of the countryside and Galtee Mountains; bathrooms have large soaking tubs. Downstairs, the drawing room, living room, and dining room are all splendidly decorated, some with 200-year-old wallpaper, gold-gilded moldings, and mahogany doors. Golf lovers can play at one of five surrounding courses. Other activities include hiking, tours of neighboring castles, hunting, and trout fishing in the estate's Ara River.

Insider Tips

In the morning, look for mares and newborn foals cantering in the fields outside of your window.

If it's not served at dinner, make sure to request the chef's house-made brown bread, served warm.

Rent bikes and explore the area's easy-to-navigate roads through the lush countryside.
