You’ll also hear about the incredible discovery of the priceless artefacts, the Book of Lismore and the Lismore Crozier.

The 360 tour experience was a brilliant idea ,its brings one into Lismore Castle and very well done to Gearoid our initial guide. The costume room was such fun and would almost go back for that alone. We got a most friendly welcome from all the staff and they add greatly to the visit and we’re also most informative about Lismore Town.

Delivers what it promises. Good place to go for advice on touring,. The 360 degree virtual visit to Lismore Castle was most enjoyable. Clean toilets.

Super VR Tour of Lismore Castle. This was so much fun for everyone including the child who couldn’t stay on his seat. It’s not long so children won’t get bored, but it’s very well done.

We went to the Heritage Centre to view the new Lismore Castle Experience. What a way to see inside the Castle and the rooms!
I won’t spoil it by writing it here but IT is a MUST DO when you go to Lismore!!
