Lismacue House in Bansha, Ireland

In lovely Tipperary, the lavish Lismacue House is a mix of old country elegance and Irish splendor. Guests have full run of this breathtaking Georgian Country House because it is an all or nothing proposition, which bodes well with large families and couples traveling in tandem. The house was built in 1813, replacing a more modest 1665 dwelling, and is surrounded by 200 emerald acres. Lismacue House embraces its 19th-century roots with forgotten details, from delicate plaster and high ceilings to sweeping staircases and original pine flooring. Bedrooms include king or queen-size beds, deep soaking tubs and windows framing picturesque views of the stunning Irish countryside. Your stay includes a personal chef, meals as requested, prepared picnic lunches on fishing and walking days, and all the privacy you can hope for.

The elegant public rooms speak to a different era. There is the drawing room with its Gothic overtones, original wallpaper, and chairs grouped around the charming fireplace. The dining room can seat up to 12 guests on original Hicks chairs, while the library is a cozy room with elegant French influences and views of the croquet lawn. How you choose to spend your time while in residence is up to you. There are several challenging golf courses nearby and, if these do not satisfy your needs, a helicopter is available to ferry you to faraway fairways. Trout fishing in the Ara River can prove to be a peaceful afternoon, while horseback riding adds a genteel element to your stay. Of course, motoring along the narrow byways yields unexpected discoveries, such as abandoned castles and cloistered abbeys.

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.

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)

Simply a magnificent experience-romantic and relaxing. We discovered this place last year via Hidden Ireland, and true to the sites promise, a stay here is a step into a world of spectacular natural beauty, glorious Georgian architecture and (beyond delicious culinary school-trained) home cooking. Kate and Jim are natural hosts; respectful, accommodating and easy-going. We enjoyed mornings of long walks watching the Nicholson’s thoroughbreds grazing, afternoons in sleepy local pubs, and evenings reading and chatting by the fire. And, in spite of what you might assume from a 300 year old country house, the internet works just fine! John F., Brooklyn

For anyone interested in history, stately manor's, period dramas and unrivalled hospitality, Lismacue is a must. The big house which stands at the top of a long tree lined avenue is mesmerising, on approach. Surrounded by extremely well manicured lawns, horse paddocks, baby foals, wonderful coach houses and stables, there is a real feeling of the old world about this place. High ceilings, antique furniture, vast yet cosy rooms are what Lismacue is all about. Magnificent views of the Galtee mountains and rolling green fields can be seen from almost every aspect of this house... and then, there is Jim and Kate Nicholson, who add the final piece of magic to this, already splendid place. Jim and Kate are the perfect hosts. Friendly, warm, welcoming, great conversationalists and fantastic cooks. Jim regaled us with fascinating facts about Lismacue as he served out pre-dinner champagne while Kate was busy cooking up a succulent pork belly and delicious cheese souffle in the kitchen. We were treated to a four course meal (of five star quality) in the main dining room, which is steeped in history. Breakfast was impeccable much old world charm ( no tea bags here---proper old fashioned tea leaves only! ) Luther, the family dog was as friendly as his owners and was enthusiastic to help us find our way, when we went to walk the rolling estate. We cannot recommend this wonderful gem highly enough. Jim and Kate give their guests the royal treatment. Majella and Armin
