A Labour of Love – restoration of Lisheen Castle

As you travel across Ireland from North to South and East to West I challenge you to count the number of ruins you pass!

We tend to group them all together as ‘castle’ ruins but truthfully they range from Norman Tower houses, to Monastic  Abbeys and round towers even sometimes just humble farmhouses. But whatever their origin, each structure has a history and a certain level of intrigue attached. It can be a rare thing that one of these structures can actually be restored and refurbished back to its former glory.

Such is the story of Lisheen Castle – “By degrees the castles are built” is an old Irish proverb and you can read all about the story of Lisheen from the original owners, the Lloyd family, from 1770 right through to the present owners and restorators – the Everard family.[/vc_column_text][us_btn text=”Restoring Lisheen Castle from Ruin” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.lisheencastle.com%2Fabout-us%2Frestoring-castle-from-ruin-1995-2000%2F|||” color=”secondary” align=”center”][vc_empty_space][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][us_gallery ids=”432,426,423,422,838,425″ columns=”3″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]

Even better than visiting a restored castle – you can have the opportunity to come and stay in one!

Lisheen Castle has been refurbished with all the modern conveniences you would find in any luxury self-catering premises, but much of the decor is in keeping with the Georgian style which are the origins of the castle.

The castle is available for a Castle Rental Vacation or even an all-inclusive package tour including meals, sightseeing and accommodation. So come and live like a Lord or a Lady (well for a week anyway!).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][us_btn text=”Vacation Rental Option” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.lisheencastle.com%2Foptions%2Fvacation-rental%2F|||” color=”secondary” align=”center”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][us_btn text=”Ireland Package Tour” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.lisheencastle.com%2Fireland-package-tour%2F|||” color=”secondary” align=”center”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row height=”small”][vc_column][vc_column_text]
