2014 saw the completion of new gravel and woodchip paths throughout the entire estate, allowing the public to explore the Lissan estate like never before. A world within a world, walkers can stroll along the iconic‘dark avenue’, bask in the glories of the beautiful parkland, or take a seat and absorb stunning vistas of the Tyrone countryside. Famous for the annual display of bluebells, walkers can enjoy the surprise of magical colour at every turn. Whilst exploring the estate, walkers can also see our restored icehouse, our restored turbine house, and walk across the ‘White Bridge’, designed by Davis Duckart. Parking on the estate is free, and tea and coffee is served in the dining room of the mansion house during the summer season, where our shop is also located. The estate is open all year, and walkers are most welcome!
