Lissan House

Places to See | Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland.

This visitor attraction Co Tyrone is an enchanting country residence set within a 250 acre demesne. The estate was created in the 17th century and remained the home of the Staples family for nearly 400 years, reputedly the longest habitation by any single family of a country house in West Ulster. Lissan came to prominence in 2003 when its popularity helped it reach the national final of the BBC Restoration programme.

Following extensive redevelopment this historic house in Northern Ireland opened its doors in spring 2012 to reveal modern interactive exhibits and original family furnishings which take you on a unique journey through the history of the estate and the family characters that have shaped it.

Saturday and Sunday 11am – 5pm; last admission 4pm

Address: Lissan House, Drumgrass Road, Lissan, Cookstown, Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland
