The magnificent gardens and woodlands at Liss Ard
add to the uniqueness of the estate. Throughout, there are specially
designed pathways and walkways that accentuate the guest's
appreciation of Irish flora.
In addition to the main Lake Abisdealy, there are a number of ponds
and a waterfall dotted around the estate, that create a feeling that
can only be compared to that in the Garden of Eden.
The gardens include the magnificent 'Crater' - designed by
James Turrell, the extraordinary American artist who is
world-renowned for his works on the theme of 'Light', and the Swiss
architect Gert Burla.
The Crater was created for the Irish skies to
be appreciated by the spectators lying on the stone structures at
the bottom - the dome-effect that is created in the elliptical frame
is truly an unforgettable experience.
