Devonshire Day: An Afternoon of Borrowed Luxury

Has life of late not lived up to your expectations? Is there no-one keeping you in the style to which you would like to become accustomed? Is the doom, gloom, recession penny pinching having a terrible impact on the champagne lifestyle? A solution is at hand!

Sunday 13th March 2011 is Devonshire Day. Devonshire Day is your opportunity to stroll in the shadow of Lismore Castle’s walls, to have the Castle’s Head Gardener, Mr. Chris Tull, personally escort you on a unique guided preview of the Castle’s spring gardens before ringing for the Butler to bring you cream tea in the Pugin Room, the Castle’s former Banqueting Hall.

If after all this special treatment you can bear to tear yourself away, you may return to the earth with a visit to Lismore Heritage Centre where you may visit our exhibition galleries and cinema to watch “The Lismore Experience”- a great way to learn in whose historical footsteps you have been threading.

This wonderful afternoon is all yours for just €20.00 and funds raised support the Immrama Festival of Travel Writing held in Lismore each June. Tickets are available on 058-54975 or 058-53365. There are five tours throughout the day: at 11.30am, 12.40pm, 1.50pm, 3.00pm and 4.10pm.

A word of caution- book early; Devonshire Day usually sells out well in advance.
