A Castle Vacation In Ireland
Have you dreamt of staying in your own castle in Ireland?
We welcome you to Lisheen castle, County Tipperary, Ireland. The castle is located in the midlands of Ireland making it an ideal location for day touring to many of the magnificent and magical sites that Ireland has to offer.
The castle is primarily a luxury rental property but we also offer week long tour packages to groups of 12 persons or more which include transport, meals and daily excursions. All our rentals periods are weekly Saturday to Saturday.
Your host is Zane Everard, the owner and manager of Lisheen Castle. His family took on the restoration of the castle from ruin in 1995 with parents Joan & Michael at the help and they opened the castle in 2000 after it’s entire restoration, they also have a dairy farm nearby.
I hope you enjoy our website, I look forward to hearing from you and discussing your vacation at Lisheen Castle.
Looking For Something A Little Different?
Lisheen Castle has been an inhabited site for centuries, but the lovingly restored manor house is largely from the 1800s. There is a lot of history here. If you like tranquility and serenity as well, you can also find it here.
The “castle” is well stocked with everything that you need for a great stay here. Especially as it pertains to the very large kitchen. Everything that you need to prepare great meals is here in terms of implements and there is a great spice rack. There are two very large refrigerators and a large industrial stove. Lots of dishes and glassware. You won’t be bored as there are books to read in the library, CDs and DVDs to watch. There is a washer and a dryer for clothes. There are bicycles to ride and the neighboring herd of cows is very friendly and curious.
The venue is located more or less in the center of the Ireland and therefore well situated as a base for touring many places on the island. Zane was a great host and easily went the extra distance to accommodate some extra requests. He is also well versed in the history of the area. We had a fantastic time, and it was a good value. Bring your friends, its more fun if there is a group of you.
Trip Of A Lifetime
We celebrated our 50th anniversary with our children and grandchildren at Lisheen Castle. All the planning and excitement were exceeded by the reality. With 7 children ages 5 to 12 the outdoor activities were fantastic. Chef and lovely beyond Ursula provided a true Irish welcome. Patrick was a delight and Lisa rounded out the team.
We think the full package is a bargain. Everyday we were off to anywhere our hearts desired. The team who provided our tours was fantastic. Having been to Ireland 8 times over the years I can truly say our stay at Lisheen was a glimpse into the heart of the country. The castle, the food, the people and especially Zane.
It is impossible to overstate how special it is. The premiere county lived up to its monicker. Thank you all for making it a trip none of us will ever forget. With great affection.
Dream Come True!
Our stay at Lisheen Castle was a dream come true. Twelve of our family making memories in the storied land of Ireland. Zane is an exemplary host. We chose to do the tour package and it truly made our stay carefree. The food was amazing and the guides provided for our daily excursions were knowledgeable and so nice.
Zane was very accommodating when we asked to alter one of the days so we could visit a place that isn’t a standard attraction in Ireland. When six of our group were delayed in the USA due to weather, Zane managed our schedule so everything worked out perfectly for all of us.
I wholeheartedly recommend a stay at Lisheen Castle!
Over The Top Castle Experience
Lisheen Castle was the perfect place for my family’s vacation.
There were 12 of us and our experience there was over-the-top. Bedrooms were spacious, the beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were large and clean.
There is a huge WOW factor about this place. All the other rooms have their own great character and we love the library the best for evening drinks. Zane, the owner, has put in a tennis court in the back plus supplies the rackets and balls. There is also a play scape for kids and a couple of bikes to use if you dare go out on those narrow roads.
I would highly recommend going with the package deal to really enjoy yourself and relax. I would most definitely recommend Lisheen Castle to other family members or friends.
What impressed me the most about this glorious castle is the feeling I got when I walked through the door. Photos did not do it justice…..it’s stunning one room after another.
The attention to detail is impeccable so that you get to appreciate what life looked like during the period, but with all of the modern amenities of today. From the heated blankets on the bed, to the cozy tv room and library, you could easily go to any room to relax and bask in peace. I took a personal fondness to the eat in kitchen, complete with Aga stove, always warm and welcoming. I could have stayed the entire week in this place alone and had the vacation of a life time.
And….if that wasn’t enough, Zane (a most excellent host) was kind and helpful and informative! He stocked the kitchen and was always a phone call away for a suggestion on whatever you felt like doing for the day. He was gracious and went above and beyond his duties. Please consider visiting this awesome castle….you will not be disappointed, and it will make you want to plan your next visit there as soon as you leave!
Amazing Ireland Trip
We were doing a combination family genealogy and sightseeing trip to the Thurles area since a part of my wives family and my family originated in the area just miles apart from each other. We had a mixed group of people with us, some family, some friends, and friends of friends.
Because of the beautiful castle we were to stay in, and the attention to detail that Zane paid to everything we were able to relax and get to know our new friends on the very first night. We had a “package tour” put together by Zane, which included transfers from the airport in Dublin and back at the end of our stay. We were picked up and hit the ground running with tours of Dublin.
When we got to “Our Castle”, Zane met us there and gave us a tour, then literally turned over the the keys to the castle to us and that was our home for the week! Each day after a traditional Irish breakfast prepared for us by chefs that fixed us breakfast and dinner, a motor coach picked us up and took us to amazing places.
Everyone associate with Lisheen Castle were friendly, knowledgeable, helpful (we had one person needing a wheelchair), and professional, we felt like were with family the entire time. I hope we can go back there again in the future.
