Lismore Castle
County Waterford

In addition to Chatsworth House in Derbyshire, Lismore Castle is privately owned by the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. Dating from the 12th century, and passed down between the Boyle and Cavendish families, Lismore is a true fairytale castle. Overlooking the scenic River Blackwater and acres of quaint Irish countryside, the castle manages to combine both a wonderfully dramatic history with modern and luxurious levels of comfort. All of the castle's many rooms have been decorated impeccably with antique tapestries, original Pugin furniture, family heirlooms and artwork by world-famous artists such as Van Dijk and Lucian Freud. While both grand and impressive, Lismore manages to also convey a strong sense of home; family portraits, roaring fires and quirky personal touches make the castle feel incredibly welcoming. The property can host between 8 and 27 guests for exclusive hire and offers guests a personal tailored service, including the use of the castle's dedicated Butler. The estate's exquisite 8 acres of landscaped gardens and modern art gallery are open to the general public and both are well worth exploring.

Client Testimonials

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
