Welcome to Lismore

Present-day Lismore Castle – a vast, battlemented mansion, spreading along a steep slope above the river – dates mostly from the 19th century, and is still the family home of the 12th Duke of Devonshire. Adele Astaire, sister of dance legend Fred, married the son of the 9th Duke and lived here from 1932 to 1944. The castle is not open to the public, but the gardens are one of the county's most popular attractions.
