Lissanisky House is full of history, and stands on the site of a former castle belonging to the renowned O'Meara family. One of the house's most notable former owners was Dr Barry O'Meara; he was Napoleon's doctor in St Helena and wrote a book on Napoleon after his death. The house stands on 10 acres and includes its original Victorian walled garden which still produces apples, plums, pears, quinces and hazelnuts from trees planted about 150 years ago.
Each bedroom at the front of the house has views of the North Tipperary pastoral landscape with the historic Silvermines Mountains in the distance. The rooms have been finished with French chandeliers, antique furniture (except the Super King beds), Nespresso machines, kettles, goose feather and down duvets and pillows, Egyptian cotton bed linen and towels and antique woollen rugs. All bedrooms are en suite and feature walk-in rainfall showers. Two of the bathrooms also have luxurious roll top cast iron baths.
