A must see when in the Lismore, Co. Waterford area. Great walking area for all the family and pets. Pack a picnic on sunny days and lazy on the grassy bank by the stream. Just beautiful.

Myself and my husband visited the Towers in Lismore today and the visit was beautiful and plenty of history to go with the visit. Well worth a visit.

Walking through the woodland with the sounds of birds, ruffles of leaves and sounds of trickling water, it is easy to forget your daily routine and just relax. The beautiful structures in the middle of the woods are bother eerie and delightful in equal measure...More

I enjoyed the walk through the woodland to the towers and its not too taxing. Its amusing to read the story behind it - sibling rivalry!
