Lismore Castle

Lismore, Irland

Lismore Castle has been the Irish home of the Dukes of Devonshire since 1753 and is possibly the most spectacular castle in Ireland. Situated in a panoramic position overlooking the Blackwater Valley it has views over rolling, wooded hills to the Knockmealdown Mountains beyond. Situated in what is often referred to as the Irish Riveria, Lismore Castle hosts the Lismore Music Festival.

The Lismore Music Festival has transformed the former castle stables into a beautiful setting. Every effort has been made to weatherproof the venue for the performance including a roof and heating, however, as we know the weather in Ireland can be unpredictable and the evenings do get chilly. Please ensure you bring appropriate clothes on the night.

Visitors/Patrons are not permitted to bring food and drink into the grounds of the castle. There will be delicious catering and a bar available within the castle grounds for the festival weekend.
