Lisanisk House
Reviewed 4 December 2013

I spent a week experiencing Rosaleen's welcoming hospitality. Lisanisk House is beautifully located on the historic Lisanisk Lake, well known by local and visiting fishermen, and is situated peacefully away from the town centre but only by a few minutes' walk.

The B&B is situated at the back of the property, so doesn't have views of the lake from the rooms, which are furnished to a reasonable standard. The breakfast is good, and Rosaleen is accommodating and well-informed. Lisanisk house is good value.

I stayed here durin a visit to the Homecoming Genealogy conference and was really impressed by the beautiful setting overlooking the lake and the warm welcome of Rosaleen the owner. Very good value for money.

We stayed at the Lisanisk as a convenient location to the nearby Nuremore hotel where we were attending a wedding reception. The B&B is located on the Dundalk Road out of Carrickmacross, convenient both to the town and the Nuremore. A tip is to check the location on google maps – its easy to find when you know where it is! A taxi to the hotel was €5.
Rosaleen checked us in and showed us to our rooms. The room had a double and single bed and ensuite. The ensuite has a shower with a curtain and it difficult to avoid the en-suite becoming a wet room.
The B&B section of the house is at the side of the house. Rosaleen kept the key in the front door which was convenient to get in later.
Breakfast consisted of the normal cereals and Rosaleen served coffee, toast and full Irish breakfast. On arrival Rosaleen asked when we would want breakfast and this was served at 10:30. After a late night it was good to have the later breakfast and meant that it wasn't a rush in the morning.
All and all a good experience and would recommend to anyone looking convenient accommodation to both the Nuremore and Carrickmacross.

We were a very large family staying at Lisanisk House, it was generally a lovely property set in a beautiful area and close to Carrickmacross Town....although it was very old fashioned.
The owner Rosleen was very friendly and always there to help....would definitely recommend to a friend....

Room Tip: She is very accommodating...some extra family came unexpectedly so she put a mattress down for us...

We stayed in a spacious family room after a wedding in the Nuremore which is just a 5 euro taxi journey away. The room was clean and beds comfortable. It was much better value than the wedding venue. The owner was friendly. Breakfast was just ok. I didn't like the cheap fruit juices.

Stayed at Lisanisk House for one night as friends got married in Carrickmacross town and had reception at Nuremore hotel. This b&b was comfortable, clean, reasonably priced and had a good standard Irish breakfast. The owner Rosaleen was also friendly and welcoming.
The setting of the house faces onto Lisanisk lake and park. So, I would say ideal for family hol. Self catering accommodation available on this property too. Only about 5-10mins walk from town.

Room Tip: Good fishing on lake.:)
