Lismacue House, Tipperrary, Ireland- A Hidden Ireland Property [UPDATE: Property is no longer with Hidden Ireland]
After our stay at the Ritz-Carlton Powerscourt, we drove down the back roads to Cahir and from there back up into County Tipperrary; where we were due to stay the night at Lismacue just outside of Bansha. I'd booked the property through Hidden Ireland and had seen some favorable reviews on Tripadvisor. The drive turns directly off of the N24 just on the southern outskirts of Bansha. It's easy to miss (we did), just keep your eyes open for the white stones marking the turnout and gates. After making our way up the lovely lime allee', we were not disappointed by our first glimpse of the property.
Dinner was quite good, and we were joined by Kate's husband, Jim Nicholson. He proved a convivial host, and we enjoyed our dinner. While we only stayed the one night, I think that Lismacue would be a good base for exploring County Tipperary and the environs. Both Cahir and Cashel are quite close by and the countryside is beautiful.
UPDATE: It appears that Lismacue is no longer with Hidden Ireland. However, the house can still be booked through their website at : www.lismacue.com. Interestingly, the entire house is also bookable through Airbnb.
