Lismacue House: Tipperary

Located in the glorious setting of the Typperary countryside, Lismacue is a luxurious Georgian Country House purchased by the current owner’s ancestor, William Baker, on the 15th of October 1704.

Lovingly modernised to cater for modern life living and its comfort, Lismacue retains most original features and furnishing, giving its guests the once-in-a-life-time opportunity to step back in the past, for a real taste of old world grandeur.

The present design as a two storey building over a basement in a mildly Tudor-Gothick style was conceived in 1813 by the Irish architect William Robertson.

The interior is classically late Georgian, covered with a thin Gothick layer. The large rooms have good plasterwork, a fine wide staircase, and a wonderful set of mahogany doors on the ground floor. Several rooms retain their early wallpaper, dating from the 1830s.

The downstairs layout features a Drawing Room with its original wallpaper, the elegant west facing Dining Room, and a charming Library where the architect's preparatory sketches for the house are still displayed.

A sweeping staircase leads you to the guests rooms.

All spacious and stylish bedrooms have a King or Queen size bed. Three of the bedrooms have en-suite baths, and two of the bedrooms share the fourth. All bathrooms boast sumptuous deep soaking baths and modern showers.

Outside is fine open parkland, with unforgettable views of the Galtee Mountains and the Glen of Aherlow, and an unusually long avenue of lime trees, the same views that can be admired from the pine shuttered windows of most rooms.

The house is available to rent on a weekly basis, usually from Saturday to Saturday and different packages are available to cater for different needs.

Lismacue House operates as a fully serviced holiday rental.
It is fully staffed, and breakfast is included within the rate.
Lunch and dinner can be arranged at an extra charge.

Professional Chef, meals or picnic lunches available on request.

"A Hidden Gem" I was on the hunt for a venue for a afternoon tea party to mark my mother's 60th birthday. After lots of emails and referrals, I was put in touch with Kate of Lismacue. I am originally from Cahir and have passed the gates of Lismacue House 100's of times but had not idea what beautiful estate and house lied at the end of the avenue. From our first email, Kate was helpful and friendly. We spent months exchanging emails & voice mails - all of which were personable & helpful. Kate put together a wonderful afternoon tea menu, she even baked a scrumptious birthday cake. On the day of the party, Kate & her team couldn't have being more accommodating - hiding cars so as not ruin the surprise - a lovely fire in the drawing room and then in to a beautiful set dining room for a spectacular afternoon tea. It is no mean feat but all 22 ladies were blown away by the venue, the food, the staff and the host. Lismacue House is a living breathing piece of Irish history kept alive by the Nicholson Family. Highly highly recommend it.

"Nostalgic" One of the must beautiful places on this earth. I love staying at Lismacue House Kate and Jim the owners are wonderful hosts. The house is magnificent and a true gem of history and good taste. I highly recommend it. I feel nostalgic for two places on this earth my home Cuba and Bansha, Ireland.

"Outstanding destination" It was an experience like none other. You arrive to a time and place that is both magical and the stuff of movies. An 18th Century home hosted by Jim and Kate who are as warm and welcoming as the surroundings. Views of the Galtee Mountains and a fully functioning horse farm replete with a number of spring foals who, along with the house dog, Luther, greeted us upon arrival. Wonderful nature walks, trout fishing, golf are all at your disposal. The house is strategically updated to preserve the patina of a bygone era without sacrificing modern convenience (hot water, wifi)
