There's not much wrong you can say about West Cork.
Rolling green pastures, glittering lakes and people so hospitable, you'll want to move there on the spot. Skibbereen is arguably one of the finer places to venture to, and Liss Ard Estate highlights this perfectly.
With limited WiFi or data coverage, this is the perfect spot to switch off and forget about the outside world...
The rooms themselves are spacious, and with a hint of a Japanese influence. It's been described as a hidden gem, specialising in the little things such as their homemade blackberry jam and providing wellies and raincoats to guests wanting a walk, as well as the bigger gestures of providing boat hire to float across the magnificent lake.
They also have dog-friendly accommodation in The Garden Rooms. Important.
It boasts fans from all over the world, including a few of celebrity status...
The grounds are expansive and lush, the staff are willing to go to the ends of the Earth for you, and the rooms boast some of the most comfortable beds in the whole of Cork.
The food is top notch, living up to its impressive 5* status, with everything and anything you could want for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
But what really sets it apart from the rest? The sky garden. A truly unique experience, breath-taking under a starry sky.
All in all, you can't really get any better. For more information, see their website.
