Lisnavagh House & Gardens

Lisnavagh House is a Gothic revival mansion on a stunning 800 acre private estate just 45 miles south of Dublin on the borders of counties Carlow and Wicklow.

Atmospheric and unique, Lisnavagh has been a family home for eleven generations. Its elegant interior is filled with antiques, curios, paintings and family portraits. The House has four wonderful interconnecting
function rooms including a beautiful oak panelled library all with roaring log fires. Upstairs, there are six, individually styled, magnificent bedrooms with their own bathrooms.

Costs range from €5,500 up to two night B&B in Lisnavagh House with exclusive venue hire and from €8,150 for two nights B&B in Lisnavagh House and exclusive hire including marquee and tables and chairs.

Guests enjoy access to fourteen acres of gardens, which include the justly famed Pleasure Grounds, the American Gardens and flourishing rhododendron beds.

The Yew Walk is a particularly memorable and natural location for a wedding ceremony - wedding blessings are possible on site and they also have a civil ceremony license.
