Omg what a fantastic experience I don’t think I have enjoyed anything more in a very long time from the moment we were met by the tour guide Sheena who was personable and knowledge in such a relaxed and warm atmosphere, the 360 tour was just so Wonderful and I felt we were taken back in time ,I would highly recommend this tour.

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.
