APRIL BLOG

Well what a Busy April it was here in Lismore Heritage Centre.  We hope everyone had a good Easter and enjoyed the break.  Our Robert Boyle Escape Room was very busy during the Easter break and we have now a new record set.  The new record is 47 minutes.  Do you think you have what it takes to beat 47 minutes and become our new record holder? 

We were delighted to be visited by the Lismore Men’s shed who took a trip back in time in the Lismore Castle Experience.  Thanks you to Jimmy and all the lads in the Men’s shed for your visit.  Our curious creatures workshop in ballysagartmore towers was a huge success and we had great weather for the morning.  There was a lot of young Atenborough’s out there.  

Final prepatation’s are under way as we get ready for our school tours. The first in 3 years.  As it has been said before. Life is slowly getting back to normal.  That’s it for this month.  Until next months blog

MARCH BLOG

It has been a busy March so far here in Lismore Heritage Centre. We were visited by St John’s school and Carriglea cairde services in to view the Lismore Castle VR experience. We also had the language people in Dungarvan who bought up some of their Italian Students staying in the locality to also view the Lismore Castle VR experience and they also had great fun in the Dress up room getting to dress up as one of the many famous character’s who have visited Lismore throughout the ages.
We were delighted to host our open day on Thursday the 3rd of March where we invited local businesses and their staff to experience all that Lismore Heritage Centre can offer, followed by a guided tour of Lady Louisa’s walk.
Engineering week was a very busy week our staff out on mobile science. They were kept on their toes as they travelled from School to school to perform mobile science workshops from 7th to the 11th of March.
It was great to have been opened this St Patricks day after a long 2 years of uncertainty. And we are looking forward to reopening weekends for the start of the spring/summer season.
There is great excitement in Co Waterford as we await the arrival of Prince Charles and Camilla. Will they come visit Lismore again as they did in 2004 to celebrate The Duke of Devonshire’s 60th birthday. Who know’s? They might even pop in to view the Lismore Castle Experience and see themselves on the castle hall of fame as part of the experience, the could test their wit’s in the Robert Boyle Escape Room. Only time will tell. Look out for our next blog post to find out more
