Now established as an important fundraiser ahead of the Immrama Festival of Travel Writing this summer, Devonshire Day will take place at the idyllic Lismore Castle on Sunday, March 19th.

Guests to the castle on the day can take a unique opportunity to enjoy afternoon tea in the Pugin Room and experience a preview tour of Lismore Castle’s Spring Gardens.

Devonshire Day is now an annual traditional at the Castle; guests are served Devonshire Cream Tea under the guidance of the Duke of Devonshire’s butler and are then offered a guided tour of the Castle gardens under the expert guidance of the head gardener, an opportunity not usually available to visitors.
