The Visit

Discover Lismore



The picturesque heritage town of Lismore, Co. Waterford is known for many things. History buffs have always been attracted to its early ecclesiastical past and its fame as a university city from the early 7th Century.

Food lovers have been known to take an hour round trip to visit the award-winning McGraths butchers, suppliers to the nearby Michelin-starred Cliff House Hotel.

The internationally renowned Blackwater Opera festival attracts music lovers from all over the world. For literary fiends, the annual Immrama Festival of Travel Writing is always marked in their diary.

Outdoor enthusiasts can choose from fly-fishing on the Blackwater, cycle Ireland's longest Greenway or take a wander on Lady Louisa’s woodland walk.

Garden lovers are spoilt for choice with a wide range of amazing historical houses and gardens in the West Waterford area and if you did not have reason enough to visit, Lismore Heritage Company CLG with investment from Fáilte Ireland, Ireland’s Ancient East Small Grants, Waterford City and County Council and reinvestment from the Lismore Heritage Centre have now brought you a one of a kind experience.
