About Lisheen Castle
The Everard family is synonimous with the area of Lisheen and Thurles, having lived here since the early 18th. century. In the mid 19th. century, the family moved to Fortfield House, which was the dower house on the Lisheen Castle Estate.
The present occupants, Michael and Joan Everard, run a very successful 300 acre farm specialisng in cereal and dairying.
In 1996, Michael and Joan undertook the restoration and renovation of the Castle. This has been a real labour of love for them, as they have a wonderful appreciation of history and things beautiful. It was specially pleasing to Michael and Joan that all the craftsmen needed to carry our this momentous task were available locally. They have left no stone unturned to ensure that Lisheen Castle would be restored to its former glory, a residence fit for a Lord.
When you enter the beautiful hallway, through the Great Oak Door, you will be immediately impressed by the opulance of the diningroom, reception rooms and library. At the end of the long corridor visitors will see a beautiful Ash Carved Stairs. Upstairs, there are currently 7 luxury en-suite bedrooms. While the emphasis in Lisheen Castle is historical, the facilities are up to today’s standard.
One of the two kitchens is fully fitted to the highest catering standard. Of interest to the guests will be the “old-style kitchen”, which is furnished with pine furniture and terracotta floor.
Even though the Castle is centrally heated throughout, you can still experience the special ambience of the “open turf fires” which are in all the reception rooms.
Laundry facilities are available in the castle.
Lisheen Castle is available for rent on a weekly or monthly basis. So, go on, if you would like to experience the wonderful opulance of past times, while still having all the comforts, contact Michael and Joan for further information.
The castle is available for corporate hire on a daily, weekly or weekend basis. The castle is ideal as an exclusive corporate launch venue, conference venue, themed weekend venue or filming location.
