Hold on to your seats, guys, because this is a big one. 

Feast your eyes upon the truly remarkable Liss Ard Estate, a residential estate with a wildly impressive early Victorian Mansion, large private lake (yes, lake) complete with Victorian Lodge, beach, several guest lodges, a tennis court and, the pièce de résistance, the 'Irish Sky Garden' which includes a unique manmade crater to contemplate the ever changing Irish sky design.

The entire estate is made up of 66 hectares, with the accommodation containing 25 bedrooms and a six-bedroom mansion house, adjacent mews house with nine bedrooms and the lake lodge with a further 10 bedrooms, as well as more housing opportunities in the coach house.

The mansion house was built circa 1850 and a summer house (or lake lodge), a moderately large house, was added to the estate circa 1870.

In Irish, the words 'Liss Ard' mean 'high fort', a pretty apt description for Liss Ard House. And if you think the inside is beautiful, check out the outside...
