Lissan is an enchanting country house set at the heart of a 267-acre estate. The story of Lissan House and those who resided here is brought to shimmering life through the work of our famously enthusiastic guiding team. We tell the story of how the Staples family came to set up home here and how their fortunes faired through good times and bad. You will be introduced to key players in a fascinating story which ranges over 400 years and find out about some of the larger than life characters who called this place home. Living history is a fun feature of the tours.
